What are the best orthotic insoles for correcting pronation?

In this article you will find out how using orthotic insoles can help to correct overpronation and underpronation (also referred to as supination), plus you will also find out what are the best insoles to buy for you!

Overpronation and underpronation can be corrected by orthotics… But what exactly is meant by pronation of the foot and how does it over or under pronate and does it even matter? This article aims to address these issues.

What is Pronation

Pronation is the inward “roll” of your foot whilst you run or walk. In other terms pronation is the amount of inward roll that occurs when your foot pushes off after each step.

Normal or neutral pronation is preferred and in order to check if you have normal pronation one of the biggest clues is your arch (on the sole of your foot) if you have a normal arch then there is a big chance you have normal pronation (sometimes not always the case).

If you have got normal pronation of the foot then you may run best in well supported orthotics.

Treating Pronation

Overpronation and Underpronation of the feet can lead to pain in the foot region and the heel as well as site wide inflammation. People who have got flat feet tend to be the ones with overpronation in the feet and are best suited to insoles or shoes that help support the arch of the foot i.e., arch support insoles. In contrast to this people who have not got flat feet but the very opposite with high arches are the ones that tend to suffer from Underpronation (AKA Supination). People who suffer from Underpronation are best to buy some shoes or insoles that help to support the arch and foot in a more natural position.

Causes of Overpronation and Underpronation

Scientists have come up with many explanations to the causes of Overpronation however scientist have yet to come to any conclusions as to what is exactly to blame. Some reasons that scientist and orthopaedics have come up with include:

  • Leg length discrepancy’s (unequal length of the leg). This can be corrected using heel lifts to correct the difference in leg lengths.
  • Weakening or tightening of the muscles surrounding the arch of the foot. This can be treated by stretching and strengthening the muscles around the arch of the foot.
  • Poorly fitting shoes that do not give adequate support and positions the foot in unnatural positions where over time can cause damage.
  • Ageing can cause weakening of the tissues that support the arch
  • Obesity, being overweight can cause more pressure on the arch of the foot.

Arch support insoles can be worn to help to support the plantar fascia and the arch of the foot thus reducing Overpronation or Underpronation of the foot. The arch support corrects and supports the natural arch in the foot reducing pain and easing inflammation.
