Pronation

Pronation of the foot is when the foot at the ankle turns outwards causing a rolling in of the foot medially (inner border). Over pronation is when this movement is excessive. Supination is the opposite to pronation.

Pronation is a twisting of the foot causing a twisting of the muscles running from the leg into the ankle and foot. Pronation is often the cause of foot pain, plantar fasciitis, frequent ankle sprains, shin splints and arch pain. Pronation can also lead to low back pain and hip and knee pain.

The treatment for pronation is usually orthotics, insoles or shoe inserts. The orthotic will gently redistribute weight and neutralize the twisting of the ankle in relation to the forefoot. By putting the foot into a neutral position pain should be relieved and normal foot function encouraged. In principle the more rigid the orthotic the greater the increase in functionality.
