High Arches Correction in St. Louis and Chesterfield

High Arches Correction

in St. Louis and Chesterfield, MO

The sole of the foot is distinctly hollow when bearing weight, due to an abnormally high medial longitudinal arch. Please call us 314-207-7280 to request a consultation about this treatable condition.

Must Know About This

  • Avoid shoes that are stiff or have an elevated heel, since they will prevent the arch from flexing naturally and focus more stress on the ball of the foot.
  • High arches can be asymptomatic, but there can also be painful symptoms that are a result of lateral metatarsal compression, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, calluses, ankle instability, lower limb stress fractures, knee pain, iliotibial band friction syndrome, and back pain.
  • Stretching and strengthening tight and weak muscles can help redistribute plantar pressure loading.

Good to Know About This

  • The high arch is due to a plantarflexed (toes pointed forward) position of the forefoot and can be very rigid and less able to efficiently absorb shock.
  • Although there are neurological causes of high arches, it can also be caused by unknown hereditary factors.
  • The sole of the foot is distinctly hollow when bearing weight, due to an abnormally high medial longitudinal arch.
