Over Pronation

INTRODUCTION TO EXCESS/ OVER PRONATION

One of the most common causes of foot and leg discomfort is a condition known as excessive/ over pronation. Normal pronation, or "turning inward" of the foot is necessary as the foot adapts to the ground. With excessive pronation/ over pronation, the arch flattens, collapses, and soft tissues stretch. This causes the joint surfaces to function at unnatural angles to each other. When this happens, joints that should be stable now become very loose and flexible.

At first, excess pronation may cause fatigue. As the problem gets worse, strain on the muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the foot and lower leg can cause permanent problems and deformities.

APPEARANCE OF EXCESS/ OVER PRONATION


1. When standing, your heels lean inward.

2. When standing, one or both of your knee caps turn inward.

3. Conditions such as a flat feet or bunions may occur.

4. You develop knee pain when you are active or involved in athletics. The knee pain slowly goes away when you rest.

5. You abnormally wear out the soles and heels of your shoes very quickly.
