PesCavus is a deformity of the foot which causes a high arch that is relatively stiff and tight. The tightening of the arch can lead to continued pain and instability of the foot as the muscles and ligaments tighten around the bones of the foot causing a ‘high arch’. PesCavus or high arch of the foot does not flatten when weight bearing. PesCavus can be caused by an imbalance of the muscles of the foot, where the agonist muscles (initiators of moment) overpower the antagonist muscles (the opposing muscles) thereby leading to high arches of the foot.
