Have you ever looked at your feet and thought that your arches appear unusually high?
If the answer is yes, you may have what is known as a high-arched foot. Such a foot posture causes problems that might not seem too different from a flatfoot condition.
Since your foot does not make proper contact with the ground, high arches impact the way your feet move and function. This can lead to a number of conditions and injuries that result in foot pain and walking difficulties.
It is helpful to know more about high arches because identifying and treating a high-arched foot in its early stages can prevent foot problems from developing in the future.
Plantar fasciitis is a frequent cause of pain in feet with high arches – the plantar fascia ligament is in a constant state of stress as it is unable to stretch to its full length, making it inflamed over time.
Foot friction blisters can be painful, which is why sufferers commonly modify their walking stride to reduce stress on the injured area. This can restrict mobility, which may affect lower body function in the long term, and cause secondary conditions to develop during intensive or extensive exercise.
When you have unusually high arches, your ankles will have a greater tendency to twist outwards, making it easier for you to sprain or injure them during a game.
Repetitive stress, resulting from such movements, can make sports professionals vulnerable to injuries such as stress fractures, ankle sprains and ITB syndrome. Such conditions could mean losing training time or in serious cases, early retirement.
People often wonder if there’s a cure for flat feet. While it is tempting to seek out a permanent solution for the condition, it helps to know which treatment is the most effective in getting results.
