A woman in jeans holding her foot because of pain from cavovarus foot deformity If you’re experiencing foot pain or noticing an unusual shape in your arch, you might be dealing with cavovarus foot deformity. This condition alters the structure of your foot and can cause discomfort or difficulty walking.

Let’s explore the common symptoms associated with cavovarus foot deformity to help you determine whether or not it’s affecting you.

What is Cavovarus Foot Deformity?

Cavovarus foot deformity occurs when the arch of the foot is excessively high, and the heel turns inward. This abnormal positioning can cause weight distribution issues and put a strain on certain parts of the foot, leading to pain and discomfort.

Common Symptoms of Cavovarus Foot Deformity

Cavus foot can manifest with the following symptoms:

  • High arches: One of the most noticeable symptoms of cavovarus foot deformity is a high arch, which can cause the foot to appear curved or arched more than usual.
  • Toe deformities: People affected by this condition might encounter toe deformities like claw toes or hammer toes, characterized by the bending of toes into abnormal positions.
  • Instability: The high arches and inward turning of the heel can lead to instability while standing or walking, making it difficult to maintain balance.
  • Pain: Pain is a common symptom, especially felt in the arch or the ball of the foot. This discomfort may worsen with activity or prolonged standing.
  • Difficulty fitting into shoes: The shape of the foot may make it challenging to find comfortable footwear that provides adequate support.
  • Limited range of motion: Some individuals with cavovarus foot deformity may experience a reduced range of motion in the affected foot, making it difficult to flex or move certain joints.
