5 Toe Exercises to Rehab High Arches

Back in 2007 Amy Winehouse may have sung about refusing rehab, but National Rehabilitation Week reminds us that rehab isn’t just for substance abuse—it’s a huge benefit to anyone struggling with physical pain or disability. National Rehabilitation Week is dedicated to highlighting how physical therapy can help alleviate your discomfort. If you struggle with side effects from cavus foot, this is good news.

Abnormally high arches can cause a variety of uncomfortable foot problems, from ball of the foot pain to heel issues. Toe conditions, like hammertoe and claw toe, are other common side effects, making it more uncomfortable to wear shoes and walk normally. Fortunately, some toe exercises can help you manage early-stage digital deformities and relieve some pain from your cavus foot. Here are a few basic ones you can try at home:

These toe exercises work the small stabilizing muscles and connectors, building their strength and flexibility so they’re less likely to hurt and cause problems. You don’t have to let your cavus foot ruin your mobility or leave you uncomfortable. If you’re struggling with foot pain from high arches, let Dr. Darren Silvester and our Next Step Foot & Ankle Clinic team in Pleasanton, TX know. See how we can help. Call (830) 569-3338 or send us an online request for more information or an appointment.
