Flat feet

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Shenna Keene is helping her patients that have flat feet.

Many people with flat feet have no symptoms. However, some people have pain in their arches, heels or the inner ankles.

Risks factors for flat feet include obesity, so maintaining a healthy weight can be helpful.

Flat feet that cause foot pain should be checked out. Physicians can order imaging studies to look at tendons and check for arthritis.
