Over-pronation in normal walking or running

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Dr. Larry Benson is helping his patients who are suffering from a problem that comes from walking or running.

If the foot flattens more than usual or rolls "inward" more than usual, this is called over-pronation. Over-pronation can be the cause of many problems.

Most often, your foot mechanics are inherited so it may be difficult to prevent.

For mild cases of over-pronation, an over the counter shoe insert offering medial foot support can help with symptoms.
