Muscle imbalances may cause unusually high or low arches. This problem, which is usually inherited, can cause aching, pain and deformity. Pain can be experienced in the heel, ankle or tendons, and deformity can cause bunions or hammertoes. Orthotics are the recommended therapy for Pes Cavus (high-arched feet) and Pes Planus (low arched or "flat" feet).
