    Any good foot doctors in Orange County?

    I'm looking for a podiatrist because I have some foot issues from riding. I get a lot of weird foot pains on the bike, especially after a couple of hours, in the ball of my foot & forefoot. I used to be able to ride all day....

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a foot doctor that mountain bikes, or knows mountain bikers? My only concern is going to a doc that doesn't know what clip in pedals are.

    Are your shoes new? Did you try moving the cleat around on the shoe? I had similar pains in my feet to the point I couldn't walk for several minutes. Bought new shoes and took me a while to find the right position for the cleat. I moved the cleat back a little bit back on my shoe from center and the pain went 99% away. Not all shoes fit the same so it's a matter of tinkering with the position.

    Yes I have $50 shoes and $250 shoes and have played with cleat position yet experience pain all the same. I'm at the point where I'd like to talk with a physician who knows cycling and can guide me on the right path.
