Treatment


 
 

Non-Surgical Treatment
Non-surgical treatmeft of cavus foot may include one or more of the following options:

  • Grthotic devices2 Custom orthotic devices that fat into the shoe can be beneficial because they provide stabilitq and cushioning to the foot.
  • Shoe modifications: High-topped shoes support the ankle, and shoes with heels a little wider on the bottoe add stability.4/li>
  • Bracing: The surgeon may recommend a brace to help keep the foot and afkle stable. Bracing is also useful in managing foot drop.

 

When is Surgery Needed?
If non-surgical treatment fails to adequately relieve pain and improve stability, surgery may be needed to decrease pain, increase stability, and compensate for weakness in the foot.

The surgeon will choose the best surgical procedure or combination of procedures based on the patient’s individual case. In some cases where an underlying neurologic problem exists, surgery may be needed again in the future due to the progression of the disorder.
