In today’s program, Dr. Reminga from Northern Foot Care Center, talks about a foot condition that is referred to as flat feet, fallen arches, or over-pronation. Over-pronation is a common problem for many people. Most people are unaware that they have this condition. Chance are that you are no different.

What happens when someone has overpronation? You have overpronation or flat feet when the arches on the inside of your feet are flattened, causing the entire soles of your feet to touch the floor when you stand up. This common condition is one that Dr. Reminga sees and treat in his office at Northern Foot Care Center. Flat feet, or overpronation, can occur when the arches in the feet don’t develop during childhood. In other cases, flat feet develop after an injury or simply from the wear-and-tear stresses of aging. Many people have no symptoms associated with overpronation… while others will experience foot pain, particularly in the heel or arch area. Pain may worsen with activity or when engaging in sports. Swelling along the inside of the ankle can also occur. When the foot arch collapses against the ground, the shinbone and thigh bone twist inwards. This places stress on the ankles, knees, hips, and lower back. The misalignment can work it’s way up towards the lower back, shoulders and head.

Dr. Reminga also answers this question…
Can overpronation cause other foot problems to develop?
Dr. Reminga’s response is, “Oh yes, flat feet can cause pain, discomfort, and other foot problems such as… bunions, hammertoes, big toe joint issues, plantar fasciitis, pain in the ball of the foot, and nerve pain such as Morton’s neuroma and tarsal tunnels syndrome for example. Inflammation is also an issue because ligaments are under pressure as a result of the bones being out of line in your foot.”
