Cavus Foot In Children: A Frozen High Arch

Disney’s done it again! This time the animation masters have created a frosty fairytale sure to get us all in the mood for Christmas. Debuting the day before Thanksgiving, Frozen follows the story of Anna, Kristoff, Elsa, and their frosty pal, Olaf. Kids of all ages will gladly get off their feet and into the theater seat as they anticipate this adventure. While a new movie is an understandable reason for a child to take it easy, if you notice a change in your child’s activity level—take note. Foot pain from a condition such as cavus foot could be the reason.

Cavus foot in children is denoted by high arches that are permanent (frozen if you will) and cause the foot to turn outward at a higher degree than normal. Chronic ankle pain and recurring ankle sprains often co-exist with this condition. You may wonder why your child’s pediatrician didn’t diagnose this problem at birth. In fact, it’s not congenital and most often develops over time by the age of ten.

Conditions of the nervous system and muscles most often lead to these arches that are higher than normal. Surrounding muscles compensate for those that are weaker, which results in an imbalance that leads to cavus foot in children. This can occur in one or both feet. Calluses, discomfort, and hammertoes are just some of the related issues.

If you suspect a problem with your child’s feet, don’t ignore it. Foot pain is not normal at any age. Take action today, and learn about the ways that our foot experts can treat your child’s condition.
