Do You Pronate? What to do About Pronated Feet?

                If so, you are not the only one! This is a common foot and ankle condition that can arise from many different reasons. Pronation refers to the biomechanics of your foot throughout the gait cycle, or when you walk. With a tendency to pronate, the foot rolls inward, with the arch collapsing and the heels and toes both flaring outwards. Just because you pronate, does not mean you have flat feet, and just because you have flat feet does not mean you pronate. However, the two more commonly co-exist. Pronation can come from flat feet, flexible arches, or anatomical variations. Regardless, if not addressed, can lead to some painful feet.

                If you or someone you know pronates, help from a foot and ankle specialist such as Dr. Nelson could be the first step to avoiding pain and pathology from pronation. Some may only need a simple fix such as modifying shoe gear or inserts. Others may need more of a workup by analyzing radiographs, gait cycle, and weighing the pros and cons of surgery. Pronation is a treatable condition and should not leave you feeling limited.
