Over Pronation

One of the most common causes of foot and leg discomfort is a condition known as over pronation. Normal pronation, or "turning inward", of the foot is necessary as the foot adapts to the ground. With over pronation, however, the arch flattens, collapses, and soft tissues stretch. This causes the joint surfaces to function at unnatural angles to each other. When this happens, joints that should be stable now become very loose and flexible. At first, over pronation may cause fatigue. As the problem gets worse, strain on the muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the foot and lower leg can cause permanent problems and deformities.

Symptoms can manifest in many different ways. The associated conditions depend on the individual lifestyle of each patient. Here is a list of some of the conditions associated with Over Pronation:

Testimonial

"I have just received my insoles and they are fantastic, already I can feel the difference and its the first day, I did not need to wear them for two hours, I wore them all day, and my feet and ankles felt brilliant all day, I have been really suffering of late, as I roll over like your diagram.

I used to go to the Bio-Mechanics section for Orthotics at my local hospital, but I believe they have stopped the service and I have suffered ever since.

I bought your insoles, but did not want to risk ordering the two pairs for £40, as did not know if they would suit, I now wish I had, is there anyway I could order a second pair now and take advantage of that discount, or is it too late, as I can see I will be moving them from one pair of shoes to the other as they are so brilliant.

Many thanks for the speedy delivery and your wonderful product."
