over pronation

Pronation is the biomechanical shock absorbing motion of the ankle, foot and lower leg. Pronation refers specifically to the natural inward flexing motion of the lower leg and ankle. Running, walking and standing cause the ankle joint to pronate which helps the body to absorb shock and control balance.
pronation over pronation
Often, a flexible ankle joint may pronate more than desired. This common condition is referred to as over-pronation. Over-pronation puts extreme strain on the various connective tissues of the foot, ankle and knee. If left uncorrected, over-pronation can lead to flat feet (falling arches), ankle & foot injuries, foot deformities (such as bunions and hammer toes) and heel pain.
