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, causing 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.
Supination is the foot's inability to rotate far enough inward during a walking or running stride. Besides the pain associated with misaligned joints, people that supinate often have arches so high that they are virtually incapable of absorbing shock. This often leads to chronic pain in the soles of the feet as well as the joints and tendons in the rest of the body.
Because supination reduces the body's ability to absorb repetitive shock and impact, the cushioning of your Digital Orthotics is an ideal preventative measure against the pain of supination.
