FOOT SPECIALIST STATES THAT PLANTAR FASCIITIS IS OFTEN CAUSED BY OVERPRONATION

 

 

 

 

Mary Ann Joyce had just finished playing a round of golf last March when she felt a sharp pain in her left heel. “I didn’t feel it on the course, but as soon as I changed shoes afterward, it was there,” says Joyce, now 68. The Frankfort, IL resident, who was vacationing in Florida at the time, immediately made a podiatrist appointment. The diagnosis: plantar fasciitis. This condition is often caused by overpronation.

“Overpronation [landing on the outside of your foot and rolling in] causes a lot of tension when the heels and toes lift off the ground,” says Stephen Pribut, DPM, a Washington, D.C., podiatrist and past president of the American Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine. Movement problems at the hip or trunk can also lead to compensation patterns.
