High Foot Arches (Pes Cavus) can come with as many problems as a flat foot. Due to the rigid nature of the foot, shock absorption can be an issue.

High Foot Arches can cause issues such as:

Treatment

  • Footwear assessment – ensure your shoes have good cushioning and arch support

  • Orthotics - soft and flexible to aid the foot in shock absorption and redistribute pressures over a larger surface area.

  • Mobilisation of stiff joints.
