Suggested  differential diagnostic table allows in short time to mark out the level of flatfoot on the base of taken results.

According to age changes of connecting tissue, a complex of conservative treatment, including physiotherapeutic means, TPE, plaster of Paris bandage, balneologic treatments, wearing insoles in shoes, taking multivitamin drugs, are offered.
