Over-pronation is an inward roll of the foot once it has been placed on the ground. In more severe conditions, the foot is still rolling inward when it should be pushing off from the ground. This causes pain throughout the leg, foot, ankle and shins if not rectified. Insoles for Over-Pronation have been developed by manufacturers to be specially suited for the condition. It helps correct the position of the foot to encourage a natural walking position.
Pronation is natural whenever we walk or run and occurs in the subtalar joint that is situated just under the ankle. The foot must roll a little to help the leg to absorb the shock of putting your weight on it.
Over-pronation, however, is when this roll goes too far and the foot is still rolling when it should be pushing back off from the ground. This condition can cause severe pain in the ankles, legs, shins and hips due to the strain on the muscles as the foot pushes off from the ground at an unnatural angle. An easy way to tell whether your feet are over-pronating or not is the wear on your shoes. If over-pronation is occurring, the inside of the shoe will be more worn than the out due to the excess friction.
