Pedorthic Pointers for Patients
Overpronation and underpronation describe general foot movements. These terms do not necessarily describe a medical problem. For example, you can overpronate and not have any problems or symptoms at all. It is important to have your foot structure and symptoms adequately assessed by your prescribing physician and a qualified practitioner such as a Canadian Certified Pedorthist.
Once the underlying conditions and mechanical faults are assessed, an appropriate treatment plan including possible custom-made orthotic and footwear recommendations can be made.
