High arched feet are commonly referred to as Cavus feet and it is estimated that up to 10% of the population have this foot condition. Having high arched feet is a lot less common than having flat feet but and can cause a lot more problems, this is because high arches place more stress on the feet than flat feet do.
If you have high arches then it means that the arches of your feet are raised higher than they are meant to be. This can be problematic as this can affect the way that you walk and create biomechanical and foot function imbalances. These imbalances can then place excessive pressure on the arch during the gait cycle making your feet more susceptible to injuries.
If you have high arches and are suffering from pain in the soles and heels of your feet then you could be suffering from a common foot injury called Pes cavus.
Pes cavus is’nt the only foot injury that you can sustain just by having cavus feet. Having high arches can leave you more susceptible to a number of different foot injuries including:
-Plantar fasciitis is very common in those with high arches. This is because having high arches can cause excessive strain on the plantar fascia. The plantar fascia is the ligament that stretches across the arch of the foot. It is an important mechanism in the gait process that helps your foot shift weight properly. When the plantar fascia is put under excessive strain it can become inflamed and cause plantar fasciitis.
-Due to the excessive pressure on the toes that this condition can cause sufferers can develop toe deformities. For example sufferers can develop bunions and claw toes due to the toes being pushed out of place from the pressure. You can find out more about treating and preventing bunions and toe deformities with insoles here.
-Cavus feet can also cause the heel to tilt forward. As your heel bone is connected to and supports the rest of your skeletal system, tilt caused by cavus feet can have a detrimental effect on your whole body by causing postural problems that can cause excessive pressure across your bodybody. This can cause injury and pain to develop in the legs, knees, hips and back as a result.
In the majority of cases these foot conditions can be treated through wearing orthotic arch support insoles.
Arch support insoles are designed to take the strain and pressure off the arches that high arches can cause. Arch support insoles can also help to stop foot function problems such as overpronation and supination that can result from having high arches. Getting rid of problems such as these is very important as these problems would otherwise damage your feet overtime.

Shoe insolesThe most prevalent cause of heel pain is Plantar Fasciitis which is inflammation or tearing of the Plantar fascia (thick connective tissue that forms the arch of the foot and is attached to the heel). Plantar fasciitis typically brought on if heavy stress is placed on the plantar fascia, causing micro tears in the ligament fibers to form, (particularly in places that attach to the heel bone). Plantar fasciitis can afflict anyone, however it is more commonly found in people who suffer from obesity, diabetes, those with flat-feet, people with high arches, runners and athletes. A doctor will usually give patients with plantar fascitiis anti-inflammatory drugs to helps reduce inflammation however these drugs only mask the symptoms. To get rid of plantar fasciitis for good you need to eliminate the underlining causes! There are alots of different causes of Plantar Fasciitis and heel spurs Constant over-training of the feet and unnatural loads put on the feet (often result of biomechanical imbalances such as over pronation and supination) is one of the most common causes of plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis can also be caused by ill fitting shoes that have a high heel or shoes that do not properly support the feet and can even be caused by just standing around for too long on your feet!

Shoe insolesHelps prevent and treat plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is a very common cause of heel and foot pain and is caused when the plantar fascia which supports the arch of our foot becomes and inflamed. Inflammation of the plantar fascia can be triggered by excessive strain and pressure on the arch of our feet, this strain and pressure can be caused by a number of different factors. One of the main contributing factors of strain and pressure on our feet is having high arches or flat feet which can affect the pronation of our feet! Pronation is necessary during the gait cycle to help shift weight and propel us forward when walking however too much or too little pronation of the feet can cause excessive strain and pressure on our feet to build up and this over time can damage the plantar fascia leading to plantar fasciitis. By wearing a pair of our shoewawa arch support insoles you can help better support your high arches or flat feet, correct your pronation and take strain of the plantar fascia. By providing your feet with optimal arch support you can help to position your feet into a more natural position and stop the arches of your feet from over stretching and becoming inflamed.£10.00
