Suffering from foot pain or injury? One of the most common causes of foot pain is due to excessive pronation placing excessive load and strain on your feet when you walk or run.
Pronation is an import part of the gait cycle with many different functions including adapting your foot to the contour of the ground, absorb shock, shift your body weight weight and propel you forward when you walk. Pronation occurs when your foot strikes the ground and when your foot pushes off from the ground. Whilst pronation is natural and very much needed, too much can cause excessive strain on key ligaments in your feet which can trigger injuries such as Plantar fasciitis, achilles tendinitis, IT-band syndrome, meniscus tears, runner’s knee, bursitis of the hip or knee, patellofermoral pain syndrome, chondromalacia patella as well as lower back pain.
If you have flat feet or high arches then you have a greater risk of developing excessive pronation. There are two different types of excessive pronation that you can suffer from, over pronation is when the foot rolls inward and causes the foot to pronate for too long before pushing off from the ground, whilst supination is when the foot tilts outwards excessively.
Correcting your foots pronation is very easy and can be achieved in a number of ways including wearing corrective orthotic insoles. Orthotic insoles use orthotic compression technology that repositions your foot into a natural position and corrects the function of your foot helping to prevent your foot from pronating excessively. Orthotic insoles will also help to support the arch of your feet stopping tension and pressure to building up on key ligaments found in your feet such as the plantar fascia causing damage.
