High arched Feet

High arched or supinated feet usually are quite rigid with more limited joint range of motion. This foot type isn’t able to absorb shock so well at the feet which then travels up the leg and can effect the knees and even hips and lower back.

A high arched foot usually has claw toes and retracted tight tendons on the top of the feet – these muscles have to work hard to prevent lateral instability during gait. High arch or supinated feet usually have a lot of pressure under the balls of the feet along with a callus build up and can be prone to plantar fasciitis and heel pain due to the tightness through the arch.

This foot type is more complex to control than flat feet and often orthoses are indicated along with extra shock absorption including with footwear.
