What is it?



A high arched foot structure is referred to as pes cavus and a supinated foot type. The inherent problem with this foot type is excessive functional tightness.


Problems with this foot type are often in the forefoot area due to high mechanical forces. There are also a plethora of tight ligament and tendon problems as well.  Over time, retracted or hammertoes often develop.

This foot type is often hereditary in nature or related to certain orthopedic or neuro-muscular conditions.

The aim of treatment is based on balancing the foot to function better and to manage, reduce, prevent or eliminate any orthopedic problems that may occur.
