Pronation refers to the foot's moving from side to side when people take activities. People with flat feet/wide feet may be prone to more injuries than people with a normal arch foot. The condition of flat feet is also known by its medical term: Overpronation.
Overpronation happens when the foot arch collapses excessively inward. As the arch flattens, your tendons, muscles, and ligaments are strained, there is a higher risk of injuries such as shin splints, Achilles tendonitis, heel spurs, and plantar fasciitis.
Some people are born with flat feet. However, flat feet or weakened arches can be also developed by different situations leading to overpronation.
These conditions and situations include:
- Excessive Activities
Choosing a supportive sneaker is crucial especially if you take exercise which involves repeating foot strikes like walking or running. The extra support helps reduce the impact of each step. Bear in mind when you make your choice:
- Measure your feet to make sure you’re choosing the best size that will fit both feels properly. You’ll want to pay attention to the width and length of your feet.
- A specially designed wider toe box frees your toes to enjoy day-to-day activities. Say goodbye to the days of painfully jamming your feet into narrow sneakers.
- A higher instep helps to prevent common injuries related to poorly fitting shoes, including Plantar Fasciitis, shin splints and overpronation.
