I wouldn't advise surgery unless it is very serious and massively affecting your movement.

I have this exact problem and by my Doctor got referred to my local chiropadist (not sure how you spell it!) They deal with foot treatment there and flat feet is one of their main things. However, if this is problematic for you due to cost (mine costs £100 a visit!) then you there are thing you can do. For example, you can go to your local pharmacy and buy foot insteps that are specially designed to build up and support the arch. Or there are special exercises that if done on a regular basis can help you. One of these is where you put your hands against a wall shoulder width apart, stretch one leg back and bend the other one, hold the position for about a minute and repeat changing legs, try and do this twice a day.I'm sure there are other exercises you can look up on the internet however.

Hope this helps mate :)

I have a lot of pain around my inner ankle and arch, as my arches feel weak and roll inward slightly. It becomes more severe after a run, cardio circuit, or walking barefoot around the house. It gets somewhat better after a few days of inactivity. I have tried different arch supports and shoes with no improvement. Is there a solution for this? A solution which would allow me to continue to exercise?

Hello. For the past month or so, I've been having a sudden, sharp, stabbing pain in the bottom of my foot. It's always in my right foot, and always in the same spot, on the bottom of the ball of my foot. It doesn't really feel like a cramp, and I can move my toes freely when it happens, my muscles don't tense up. It's just a really sharp, strong pain. It goes away after about 10 seconds. And it happens at least once a day, up to 3 or 4 times per day. Is this normal or should I see a doctor? Should I be concerned about a blood clot or something?
