A normal foot pronates (rolls inwards) and supinates (rolls outwards) during a running or walking stride. If the feet are not properly supported normal pronation and supination can become excessive. This causes increased strain resulting in the inflamation of the soft tissues which help support the joints in the feet, knees, hips, back and neck.
Please note: If your pain persists, seek the advice of a medical professional.
A lack of proper support weakens the arch area, leading to its eventual collapse. When symptoms develop, increased strain is placed on the soft tissue and joints throughout the entire body, which leads to chronic pain and injury.
