HOLLOW FOOT WHAT NEXT?
The 6 golden hollow foot exercises for every day
Did you know that 75% of all workers suffer from back pain and 45% from knee pain, often due to a foot malposition? It doesn't have to be that way. In our series on the most common foot malpositions, we're covering high arches in this article.
We focus on the best hollow foot exercises that you can use to curb and, in the best case, correct your foot problem. This is because early diagnosis and the right form of therapy are important in order not to provoke any late consequences and not to let your body suffer from the deformity. In addition to the high arch exercises, there are various orthopaedic aids, such as the high arch step insole or the high arch splint. However, you should always talk to your doctor or orthopaedist first and get the right diagnosis so that you can react in a targeted way.
Know the extent of your problem

Tip in the Box:
Do you have to operate on a high arch?
A hollow foot only needs to be operated on if conservative therapy, such as hollow foot exercises, is not effective or reaches its limits. As with all other deformities, the aim is always to protect surrounding tendons, joints and muscles from major damage. If this is not easier, a high arch operation is considered.
You should think about surgery if you have the following symptoms:
- The high arch is progressive, i.e. it progresses quickly.
- You have pain and your gait is unstable
- Your outer ligaments are under too much strain due to frequent twisting of the ankles
- You have injuries and sore spots on the sole of your foot that hardly heal or reoccur in the same place.
id="conclusion"If you know what you have, you can take targeted action against it! Are you unsure whether you actually have high arches or how you can treat them properly? Then go to your doctor or orthopaedist. The sooner you know, the sooner you can get rid of that unpleasant hollow foot. Recognise early, treat early, avoid pain and consequential damage and always do the high arch exercises regularly, then nothing can really go wrong.
