Foot Conditions - Pronated Foot
Overpronation is used to describe the way your foot moves when you walk. In people who overpronate, the outer edge of the heel hits the ground first, and then the foot rolls inward onto the arch. This overly flattens the foot.
Over time, overpronation can damage muscles, tendons, and ligaments, and cause problems that lead to arch pain. If you overpronate, you may also experience knee, hip, or back pain, corns or calluses, and hammer toes. You may also notice extra wear on the inside part of the bottom of your shoe, specifically on the inside of the heel and the ball of the foot.
