Pronation refers to the natural movement of your foot during walking. For many people, this natural movement can shift the foot too far inward or outward, causing overpronation or supination, with either situation contributing to the formation of foot problems like arch pain and plantar fasciitis. Misalignment of your feet and ankles can throw off the alignment in your knees, hips, and back causing considerable pain and discomfort far away from your feet. Custom-fitted orthotic inserts are excellent for correcting these and many other problems.
If you suspect that pronation problems are causing your foot and ankle pain, see your foot doctor for the proper diagnosis and treatment.
