Pes cavus and pes planus are both very common problems, and both can result in quite a bit of foot pain.

high arches foot pain

Pes Cavus (high arches) usually places an unnessary amount of weight on the metatarsals (balls of the feet), and on the heel, causing strain in the arch of the foot and sometimes hammer toes. With a true arch support that captures the real shape of the arch, a person's weight and foot strain can be redistributed equally along the entire plantar surface of the foot to relieve pressure.

flat feet foot pain

Pes Planus (flat feet) can create foot pain being a symptom of fallen arches. Overtime, tendons and ligaments can weaken and allow an arch to fall out of place. Proper arch support can provide relief of pain and prevent feet from becoming worse overtime.
