High Arched Feet

High Arched Feet

High arched feet, also known as pes cavus, is a foot condition characterized by an abnormally high arch in the foot. This condition can cause discomfort, pain, and instability in the feet and can also increase the risk of developing other foot conditions such as hammertoes, corns, and calluses.

At Sydney Wide Podiatry, we understand the impact high arched feet can have on your daily life and we provide comprehensive treatment options to help alleviate your symptoms and improve your overall foot health.

Causes of High Arched Feet

High arched feet can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, neurological conditions such as cerebral palsy or Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, or as a result of a previous injury. The condition may also be associated with underlying medical conditions such as stroke or spinal cord injuries.

Some of the most common symptoms of high-arched feet include:


  • Pain or discomfort in the feet, particularly in the arch, heel, or ball of the foot.
