Foot and Ankle – Cavus Foot

Cavus foot is a condition where the arches in the foot are significantly higher than a normal arch. This causes the heel to point inward and the toes to flex. Children with this condition typically develop it slowly from the time they begin to walk until 10 years old. Most often this condition occurs in conjunction with another musculoskeletal or nervous system disorder.
