Excessive Pronation

Excessive Pronation

Picture of normal foot position and excessive pronation

Normally when you walk, your foot lands on the outer side of the heel first. Your weight then passes along the inner edge of the sole (normal pronation) and then back to the outside of the foot. In excessive pronation, the body weight stays on the inner edge of the sole.
