Overpronation Bothers Your Feet, Ankles, Knees, and Back


Overpronation is a tendency to roll your foot inward when you walk. It is related to poorly supported arches. Those who have untreated flat feet tend to overpronate. The misalignment of the foot translates into improper ankle rotation with a radiating effect that can cause knee, hip, and back problems as well.

Some tips for determining if you have an overpronation problem include the following:
