High Arched Feet

HIGH ARCHED FEET

A natural approach – no orthotics, no surgery, no medication​

What are High Arched Feet?

Highly arched feet are just as it says – they have a high medial and lateral longitudinal arch. The characteristics of a high arched foot may include some or all of the following:

  1. Limited pronation or rolling in of the foot.
  2. Rigid foot type – i.e lacks quality movement
  3. Retracted toes
  4. Increased tendency to sprain ankles
  5. Reduced ankle dorsiflexion.
  6. Increased tendencies for stress fractures of the tibia, fibula, and 5th metatarsal.

What causes High Arched Feet?

Sometimes there can be certain neurological conditions that can lead to high arched feet and therefore a thorough examination by Foot Posture Centre podiatrists will help assess this particular condition. With the reduction in quality range of movement with this foot type there is often a range of symptoms experienced by people including, numbness and tightness in the toes, feet and ankles. Often clients will mention that foot orthotics have been of limited or no help.

How to fix High Arched Feet naturally

As mentioned earlier, the lack movement in this foot type is often one of the main problems with the high arched foot. Therefore when Foot Posture Centre podiatrists use the All Natural System with this condition, and restore quality movement to the joints of the foot an ankle through foot mobilisation and corrective stretching techniques, this will result in a feeling of ‘freedom’ within the foot/ankle and an ‘ease’’ with walking.

Stretching the muscles under the arch and along the top of the foot is a great way to start resolving the symptoms associated with this condition. However if you would like to have your foot condition assessed more thoroughly and find out if the symptoms associated with your high arched feet can be corrected naturally without medication, orthotics or surgery, then call the Foot Posture Centre nearest you to arrange an appointment.
