High arches can occur both naturally due to genetics and in more rare cases because of neurological conditions. People with this condition have an especially pronounced arch that does not touch the ground, or barely touches the ground when standing.
By themselves, high arches aren’t necessarily painful, but it does put extra pressure on the balls of the feet and the heels. It can also interfere with natural foot motion, causing supination, which is an excessive outward roll when walking. Because of this, high arches and supination can be associated with a range of issues, including foot pain, ankle pain and knee pain.
Among the treatment options available to help relieve these problems if they are being experienced are custom orthotics designed specifically for high arches. We’re sharing the following information about the benefits of orthotics for high arches to determine if this option is right for you.
