Many of us suffer common aches and pains, including foot pain, tired aching legs, knee or lower back pain. Few people realise that these conditions are “biomechanical” and stem from poor alignment of the feet and ankles.
Excess pronation (or over-pronation) is a common condition and can be described as "rolling in of the feet and flattening of the arches”. It is estimated that over half the Australian population suffers from over-pronation.
Over-pronation causes the bones in the lower leg to rotate inwards and the pelvis is tilted forward. This unnatural position places excess forces on the knee cap and it is a major contributing factor to conditions such as shin splints, aching legs, knee pain - even low back pain!
Not surprisingly excess pronation also plays an important role in typical foot complaints such as Plantar Fasciitis, heel pain, pain in the ball of the foot (Metatarsalgia), Achilles Tendonitis, as well as Arthritis.
Even though many of us have poorly aligned feet, this condition may not result in pain or injury. However, when the feet are not supported daily walking and standing on hard surfaces will eventually take its toll and lead to strained muscles, pressure and friction to the joints and general wear and tear to your body.
Whether you are on your feet all day for work, you do a lot of running, play sports or just enjoy long walks it is important your feet and body is properly aligned, thus preventing the development of pain and injury.
