Correcting overpronation: help for faulty foot mechanics

Phys Sportsmed. 1999 May;27(5):95-6. doi: 10.3810/psm.1999.05.868.


Foot pronation-inward tilting of the ankles and flattening of the arches-is a normal part of walking and running. But when it's excessive, it can lead to foot, ankle, or even knee pain. Properly designed shoe inserts, called orthoses, can help correct overpronation.
