In brief: Do they hurt?
Treatment is based on pain/limitations.
If they don't hurt, no treatment required. Non-surgical treatment usually involves shoe inserts (orthotics). Surgical management requires a comprehensive approach to gain a lasting correction.

In brief: Custom orthotics
As the structure slumps closer to flat on the floor, foot function becomes abnormal.
The foot will feel more fatigued in the early stages, then develop pain and/or deformities as the altered function causes progressive tissue damage.
