High arches, also known as cavus foot, is a foot condition that affects many people, causing pain and discomfort. At Carrollton Foot Center, Dr. Khavari specializes in evaluating and treating high arches, helping patients get relief and improve their quality of life.
During an in-office exam that includes x-rays, Dr. Khavari evaluates the foot to determine the severity of the high arches and any underlying conditions. Custom orthotics are often the first line of treatment for high arches, as they help provide support to the arch and distribute pressure more evenly across the foot. In addition, Dr. Khavari may recommend appropriate shoe gear to help alleviate symptoms.
If conservative treatment fails, there are a variety of surgical procedures that can be used to correct the deformity caused by high arches. These include soft tissue procedures, such as tendon transfers and releases, as well as osseous procedures, such as bone cuts and fusions.
It’s important to note that high arches can be a sign of an underlying neurological condition, such as Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease or spina bifida. That’s why it’s essential to seek medical attention if you’re experiencing foot pain or discomfort related to high arches.
