Overpronation is a term used to describe excessive flattening of the plantar arch. This is when the foot rolls in excessively, or at a time when it should not, for instance late in the stance phase of gait. The reason it is considered a problem is because it effects the timing and direction of forces traveling through the leg. Uncontrolled Overpronation is most often associated with all sorts of lower leg injuries such as Shin Splints, Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendonitis, Hamstring Strains and Hip Pain.
Although Overpronation is surprisingly common through all segments of the population, elders and pregnant women are at increased risk. Unfortunately, Overpronation can lead to additional problems with your feet, ankles, and knees. Flat Feet, Fallen Arches and Overpronation can be easily treated with a pair of supportive shoe inserts, also known as orthotics, or orthotic insoles. This can occur in all people, no matter whether they have high arches or flat foot arches. Treatment can lead to several types of running injuries, so diagnosing and correcting the condition is crucial if you suspect that it’s causing soreness. Damage to the feet from Overpronation can easily occur during exercising, as well as ankle injuries and Shin Splints.
If you have Osteoporosis or weak bones, you have Fallen Arches, you are overweight, have Flat Feet or are just starting out exercising again after a period or absence, Overpronation can be more of a concern. It can cause, or aggravate, Knee Pain that is caused by inadequate knee tracking. The postural problems associated with Fallen Arches and Overpronation can cause pain in the feet, ankles, legs and knees, and in some cases can lead to lower back pain. People experiencing this will visibly see their ankles role inwards.
Those with mild to severe Overpronation will want to invest in a pair of Stability Running Shoes with Custom Orthotics that are designed to sufficiently support their foots striking pattern. If you are a mild overpronator, the best running shoe with Custom Orthotics will be a lighter shoe and orthotics with stability.
