Kelly has done multiple videos for those with flat feet/collapsed arches and I was wondering if there should be a different approach for those of us with high arches/pes cavus… from my limited google-fu it seems that an emphasis needs to be placed on smashing/stretching the tibialis posterior whilst strengthening the peroneals?Anyone out there have super high arches/navicular drop/ankles stiff as concrete? Any suggestions would be awesome!

A high arch is the opposite of having a flat foot so it is addressed differently.
This is an abnormally high medial longitudinal arch.
Depending on the type of pes cavus dictates how it is addressed.

There are several episodes that address the ankle.
You need to look up/downstream of the ankle to identify the cause. Where you see the issue may not be where the cause originates.
