striving for excellence in healthcare one foot at a time!
It is estimated that about 15% of the global population has Pes Cavus, a medical condition of the feet that receives little publicity. Pes Cavus can be inherited or formed from clubfoot, fractures or neuromuscular disease, and is also commonly known as claw foot or Talipes Arcuatus among medical professionals. However, 20% of patients diagnosed have no history of any of these.
Pes Cavus is an abnormally shaped high arch on the bottom of the foot that lies between the heel and the balls behind the toes. Making the balls and heel the only part of the foot to actually touch the ground while walking, the toes have a tendency to curl up. This condition requires special shoes or inserts to support the deformity, and is a very uncomfortable condition. Unless the pain becomes bad enough to seek help, many do not know they suffer from Pes Cavus.Read more of our FEETured Article.
