Flat Foot Pain Relief
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 pain, hip pain, or back pain.
It’s important to address flat feet with our trusted and award-winning foot specialists in Suffolk, North Suffolk, Hampton, and Virginia Beach, Virginia (VA), to help prevent these problems.
