In brief: Can not

It would take surgical intervention to correct this.
Most of the time conservative treatments help.

In brief: Surgery

Unless you are an infant, you are stuck with these arches unless surgical intervention is performed.
This is rarely necessary and reserved for severe causes of pain and disability. However supportive shoes and orthotics often are whats's needed to manage the problem if there are symptoms.
