Flat feet are caused by naturally low arches and over-pronation – a position where your feet tend to turn away from your body and your heel rolls outward. Over time, this imbalance in your foot structure can lead to heel pain, bunions, hammertoes, shin splints, and even knee, hip, or back pain. It’s important to address flat feet with our trusted Pomona foot doctor and prevent these problems. In some cases, these foot problems don’t respond to conservative treatment and you may need surgery to correct the underlying cause of your flat feet.
The best way to avoid these complications is to visit us at Pomona Valley Podiatry Group of Pomona, California (CA). We may be able to provide custom orthotics to decrease your chances for foot surgery. We most likely will invite you to our Pomona, CA podiatry office for an evaluation.
