High Arch - Pes Cavus
Pes Cavus is a foot condition often referred to as high arches. In Pes Cavus, the rigid arch causes the foot to strike down on its lateral side while walking. This puts strain on the knees and on the later side of the foot and ankle while pushing the weight of the body onto a very small portion of the feet.
