High Arch Feet

High Arch Feet

High arch feet, also known as pes cavus, is a foot condition where the arch of the foot is raised more than usual. In this condition, the arch may appear excessively curved or rigid, with most of the weight borne on the ball and heel of the foot. This condition can be inherited or caused by neurological disorders, muscular dystrophy, nerve damage, or certain medical conditions. High arch feet may lead to foot pain, instability, difficulty fitting into shoes, and an increased risk of developing foot problems like hammertoes, calluses, or ankle sprains due to uneven weight distribution.

How to Manage High Arch Feet

High arch feet, also known as pes cavus, require attentive care to alleviate discomfort and prevent potential foot complications. Selecting appropriate footwear with good arch support and cushioning is crucial to distribute weight evenly and reduce strain. Consultation with a podiatrist or orthopedic specialist is recommended for a comprehensive assessment and personalized treatment plan. They may suggest custom orthotics, stretching exercises, or therapies to improve flexibility and address any associated discomfort. Regular monitoring and proactive management are essential to maintain foot health and prevent potential issues linked to high arches.
