How Are High Arched Feet Diagnosed? 

During a consultation with your NYC podiatrist, they can carry out the necessary tests to determine whether you have high arched feet. Often, they will: 

  • Examine your family history 
  • Examine your foot to look for high arches, calluses, or hammertoes 
  • Observe and test muscle strength and your walking pattern/coordination 
  • Look at the pattern of wear on your shoes 

If it has been determined that you have high arched feet, and that this condition is causing you significant discomfort or pain, then there are several non-surgical and surgical treatment options available to you. 


Non-Surgical Treatment of High Arched Feet 

1. Orthotic devices. Custom orthotic devices are medical devices that fit into your shoe. They can prove to be beneficial because they provide stability and cushioning to your foot.

2. Shoe modifications. High topped shoes will support your ankle, and shoes with wider heels will add stability. 

3. Brace. Your podiatrist may suggest a brace to keep your ankle stable. 

4. Physical therapy. You may want to opt for physical therapy, as this can help you stretch any tight muscles and strengthen weak ones. 

When is surgical treatment necessary? 

If non-surgical treatment fails to adequately relieve your pain and improve stability, then your NYC podiatrist may suggest that surgery is required to decrease pain, increase stability, and compensate for weakness in the foot. 

Surgery might also reduce your risk for developing other injuries, such as broken bones or repeated ankle sprains.
