Does Excessive Pronation Cause Pain?

Publikation: Konferencebidrag uden forlag/tidsskriftPosterForskning


Excessive pronation could be an inborn abnormality or an acquired foot disorder caused by overuse, inadequate supported shoes or inadequate foot training. When the muscles and ligaments of the foot are insufficient it can cause an excessive pronation of the foot.

The current treatment consist of antipronation shoes or insoles, which latest was studied by Kulce DG., et al (2007).

So far there have been no randomized controlled studies showing methods that can measure the effect of treatments with insoles. Some of the excessive pronation patients recieve antipronation training often if the patient is in pain but the effect of this treatment has not been documented. Therefore the authors wanted to investigate if it was possible to measure a change in foot posture after af given treatment.
