Flat Feet Overpronation : Causes and Solutions
• Overpronation is an abnormal gait that can happen when the foot rolls too far inward- making it more difficult for your arch to absorb impact. This condition is especially common in people with flatfeet.
Overpronation is very prominent in people who have flexible, flat feet. The framework of the foot begins to collapse, causing the foot to flatten and adding stress to other parts of the foot. As a result, over-pronation, often leads to Plantar Fasciitis, Heel Spurs, Metatarsalgia or Bunions.Overpronation usually causes overuse injuries, especially in runners especially in runners.
There are many causes of flat feet. Obesity, pregnancy or repetitive pounding on a hard surface can weaken the arch leading to overpronation. Often people with flat feet do not experience discomfort immediately, and some never suffer from any discomfort at all. However, when symptoms develop and become painful, walking becomes awkward and causes increased strain on the feet and calves.
Overpronation can be treated conservatively with custom made foot orthotics. These orthotics should be designed with appropriate arch support as per the requirement and medial rear foot posting to prevent the over-pronation. Doing exercises that strengthen the arches and muscles around them.
