Abstract: Background and aim: Flatfoot frequently causes tissue tension, pain, overuse injuries, poor functioning, and incapacity in the lower limbs, all of which have a negative influence. Eccentric and concentric contractions move quickly and strongly together during Plyometric exercise. The goal of the Plyometric exercise is to increase the athlete's capacity to produce force from a fast muscle contraction rapidly and effectively. Plyometric exercise is a simple and effective training programme for a variety of stability and balance and is a better option for corrective exercise. Methods: The experimental study was conducted at SIMATS. A total of 30 students were selected as per the inclusion criteria and exclusion criteria. Selected individuals were randomly allocated into two groups. Group A (control group n-15) and Group B (experimental group n-15) were assessed with the Navicular drop test (NDT) and foot function index (FFI). Group A was given flatfoot corrective exercises, and Group B was given Plyometric exercises. Both treatment programmes were given for 8 weeks. The pre-test and post-test values of the Navicular drop test (NDT) and foot function index (FFI) have been noted. Results: Statistical analysis was done for all the collected data using a paired t-test. The test showed significant effects (p<0.0001) in both groups. The test showed that the subjects who received Plyometric exercises had improved foot arches among flexible flat feet. Conclusion: The results and the data obtained from this research were statistically classified, and it has been concluded that there was a definite and positive effect of Plyometric exercises for flexible flat feet.
