What Is Pronation?


Pronation is a normal movement of the foot when it rolls or tilts inwards. This movement occurs soon after the foot contacts the ground and causes the muscles to relax and the joints to loosen. Pronation has to happen in order for your foot to adapt to different terrains and for shock absorption.


Heel Pain Treatment


The most common causes of heel pain is what is known as Plantar fasciitis. This is an inflammation of the Plantar fascia, which is the structure that runs from the heel to the ball of the foot. This strong strip of tissue supports the arch of the foot.


Knee Pain Treatment


Patello-femoral Pain Syndrome (PFPS) is a common knee problem that is believed to be related to the contact area between the kneecap (called the ‘patella’) and the thigh bone (called the ‘femur’).



Orthotics


Feet can be likened to the wheels on a car- if the alignment is not correct then excessive stress and pressure is placed on other parts of the body leading to wear and tear.
