High Arches

High Arches

Paediatric high arches, or pes cavus, is a condition characterised by abnormally high arches in a child’s feet. While high arches can be a natural variation, they can sometimes lead to discomfort, instability, and other issues. At Children’s Podiatry, our high experienced team is dedicated to providing comprehensive care and effective treatment options to address paediatric high arches and promote optimal foot health for children.

Understanding Pediatric High Arches:

Paediatric high arches result from an arch that is higher than usual, causing more weight to be placed on the balls and heels of the feet. This condition can be congenital or acquired, and it may affect one or both feet.
