    I'm only flat-footed on my left side. I had to get some special insoles made. Wearing them at first hurt the arch of my foot a lot but I got use to it in the end.

    Wow a thread about having flat feet? !
    Yes I am among the flat footed bunch. Quite surprising seeing a nearly 50:50 ratio (45% to 55%) atm.

    Both my feet are flat and it is definitely caused problems. I get aches on topside of my feet, achilles and the arch as well. And all these issues occurred when I got more serious about badminton, as I started to play 3-4 days a week. (I used to play basketball) Eventually, I felt the pain in every single little step I took after the game so my physio advised my to go and see a othotic specialist as she couldn't do anything about it.

    My othotics specialist confirmed that the problems are caused by my flat feet and if I continue to play without correct support...the bones on the topside of my feet will eventually collapse (he showed me some nasty pictures). So I got lured into some expensive othotics padding...

    And ever since I had them put in, I haven't had the same problem...except for minor achilles pain (less than before) severe blisters around bottom of my feet as I slowly adjusts to the new shape and rubbing of the skins. So definitely more plus and a some minus.

    It's not as much a disadvantage in badminton as it is in other sports due to the short distances covered during running across the court, so if you have the condition, don't worry about it and just enjoy the game? A physio I spoke to once mentioned, it's quite common and shouldn't be a problem in most sports.

    Trouble is, one doesn't know if over a long period of years, if it will predispose to injuries of other joints.

    Was my knee injury a result of flat feet?

    Don't have a good answer myself.
