What can be done? The goal is to bring the joints of the foot back into a normal functioning position, and to prevent increasing rubbing and instability in the bones of the arch.
Over-pronation, or flat feet, is a common biomechanical problem that occurs in the walking process when a person’s arch collapses upon weight bearing. This motion can cause extreme stress or inflammation on the plantar fascia, possibly causing severe discomfort and leading to other foot problems.
The hindfoot is composed of several bones that go through complex opposite motions called pronation and supination . Pronation occurs when the ankle bone (talus) turns inward and the foot turns outward, as opposed to supination where the ankle bone turns outward and the foot turns inward.
My left foot was STILL giving me problems 9 months after surgery. If I stepped down too hard or walked on uneven sidewalks I would get horrible pain. I finally caved and went in to see the Doc. He mentioned that sometimes the area around the stent gets chronic inflammation (synovitis?) so he gave me a shot of corticosteroid in the area around the implant….OW!!!! It really bloody hurt. I also had to get another shot for the mortons neuroma in my left foot……more pain😦 Not a fun day at the doctors office.
Overpronation is a term used to describe excessive flattening of the plantar arch. Pronation is a normal part of our gait (the way we walk), and it comprises three movements: dorsiflexion, eversion, and abduction.
