Living With Flat Feet

It’s something we often hear as podiatrists “my feet hurt all the time because I have flat feet”. While flat feet can certainly be painful there are several things that you can do to help keep your flat feet pain free.

 

There are several causes of flat feet, from injury to tendon problems, but the most common cause of flat feet is usually nothing more than heredity. One or both of your parents had flat feet and it has been handed down with everything else in your genes. But this doesn’t mean that you can’t live a healthy and pain free life with flat feet. Quite the opposite, we have several conservative treatments to help you get the most out of those flat feet.
