Do you suffer from heel pain (burning sensation in the centre of your heel joint), foot pain, aching legs, knee or lower back pain? Don’t worry you are not the only one with this problem. This type of pain is common in people of all ages. Most people are unaware that many of these complaints are “bio-mechanical” and are caused by poor alignment of the foot and ankle during walking or poor gait.
Over pronation is believed to be a problem of more than 50% of the population in Australia according to foot specialists and in some studies the problem is quoted to be as high as 70%. When we walk the foot contacts the ground and changes direction in 3 main stages i.e. heel strike, pronation or mid-foot loading and fore-foot loading or toe off.
A definition of normal gait would be a heel strike on the lateral aspect or outside edge of the heel area then the arch of the foot lowers and the foot and ankle roll inward which is pronation. During this stage the weight is transferred from the outside or lateral aspect across to the medial or inside edge of the foot, over the metatarsal joints or balls of the feet to the 1st metatarsal or big toe joint and then finally the foot leaves the ground with the big toe being the last section to leave the ground.
Over pronation is where the rolling of the foot and ankle joint inwards does not stop once the medial edge of the foot is reached and so the centre of balance is now outside the surface of your foot. Over pronation is one of the major causes of heel pain or heel spurs and is commonly referred to as Plantar Fasciitis. It can often lead to pain in the ball of the foot known as Metatarsalgia and many other foot problems.
Much like a car with poorly aligned wheels our body must work harder to compensate for poorly aligned feet and so pain can be caused in the legs, knees and even the lower back. Orthotics can help to re-align the feet and so neutralise the pain felt in other areas of the body by reducing or even eliminating the over pronation at the root of the problem.
Orthotics come in different levels of firmness to cater for different uses such as walking, running, high impact sports or diabetic foot conditions and are a very effective treatment for conditions including Plantar Fasciitis (heel pain & heel spurs), Metatarsalgia (ball of foot pain), Achilles Tendinitis, shin splints, tired aching legs, knee pain and lower back pain.
