Excess/ Over Pronation

Introduction to 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 become very loose and flexible.

At first, excessive 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.

Customer Review

"I purchased a set of your Insoles just over 12 months ago. I spend all my days up on roofs as I am a TV antenna installer & I have found the insoles very beneficial. My legs used to ache a lot at the end of a hard day's work but now I come home and feel fine - no more sore legs. These Insoles work wonders!"
