Flat foot: One is usually born with flat feet Arch supports may help it feel better but there is no real "cure"
Dr. Michael Genkin

No: There are no medications for flat feet, but a good pair of custom orthotics can help prevent some of the problems associated with it. For the most part flat feet are a genetic condition so you always had it.
