Insufficient inward roll of the foot during gait. The foot will roll outward placing more stress on the outside edge of the foot.
This can result in Achilles tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, and additional stress to joints.
People with high arches often supinate and can experience Ball-of-Foot (BOF) pain and heel pain as well as a tight Achilles tendon.
Ball of Foot
As part of a normal stride, your rear-foot should roll inward a bit after your heel hits the ground, cushioning the impact and helping you adapt to uneven surfaces. That is pronation.
If your rear-foot doesn't roll in far enough, however, or seems to roll outward, supination occurs. Your foot will no longer properly absorb the shock of each step.
Supination can cause ankle injuries or sprains, Achilles Tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis and Hammer toe, joint pains, and knee pain and swelling.
DON’T WALK BAREFOOT. A shoe or a supportive sandal must be worn at all times.
By supporting the arch, it will decrease the amount of pressure the heel will have to absorb.
This can all be solved with an insert that re-adjusts your foot and puts you back into proper alignment.
