In brief: No
"fallen arches" in someone your age is most likely secondary to genetics.
You can't pick your parents! the best you can do is protect your feet with good shoes and supports. Abnormal foot fun tigon can lead to problems farther "up stream" with ankle, knee, hip and low back problems. Improving foot function can decrease the likelihood of these secondary problems. Dr l.
