MOST PEOPLE ARE BORN WITH A GENETIC DEFICIENCY KNOWN AS OVERPRONATION.  THIS IS WHERE THE ARCH IS COLLAPSED AND THE FOOT AND ANKLE ROLL INWARDS OR HAVE MEDIALLY ROTATED.  THIS CAN RESULT IN A VARIETY OF MEDICAL CONDITIONS SUCH AS HEEL PAIN, PLANTAR FASCIITIS, METATARSALGIA, ETC.  THE LIST GOES ON.  THE OTHER THING THAT HAPPENS IS BECAUSE THE STRUCTURAL FAULT STARTS AT THE VERY BOTTOM OF THE KINETIC CHAIN, THIS DISRUPTS THE NORMAL FUNCTION OF EVERY JOINT ABOVE THE FOOT.  THIS CONDITIONS OCCUR OVER A PERIOD OF TIME AND ARE MODIFIED BY THE ACTIVITY LEVEL OF THE PERSON, WEIGHT, GENERAL HEALTH, PREDISPOSING FACTORS, INJURY AND AGE, ETC.

WHEN A PERSON PRESENTS TO OUR FOOT CLINIC WITH A CONDITION SUBSEQUENT TO OVERPRONATION WITH SYMPTOMS SUCH AS PAIN, INFLAMATION, DECREASED RANGE OF MOTION, WE TREAT THE SYMPTOMS INITIALLY TO DECREASE THE DISCOMFORT, BUT WE THEN TRY TO CORRECT THE UNDERLYING CAUSE WHICH IN MANY CASES IS OVERPRONATION.   A CUSTOM MADE ORTHOTIC IS USUALLY PRESCRIBED TO CORRECT THE OVERPRONATION AS WELL AS REDUCING SYMPTOMS AND INCREASEING FUNCTION.  WHEN A PATIENT PRESENTS TO US AT OUR FOOT CLINIC WHO HAS OVERPRONATION WE DISCUSS WITH THEM THE IMPORTANCE OF WEARING ORTHOTICS WHETHER OR NOT THE HAVE SYMPTOMS AT THAT TIME.  MUCH BETTER TO KEEP SOMEONE HEALTHY THAN TO TRY TO FIX A PROBLEM ONCE THEY HAVE IT.

WE ONLY DEAL WITH THE FINEST ORTHOTIC LABS TO INSURE THAT OUR PATIENTS RECEIVE THE BEST POSSIBLE ORTHOTIC.  WE STAND BEHIND OUR PRODUCTS AND SERVICE AT ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS 100%.  IF YOU ARE A LOVED ONE THINK THAT YOU MAY BE SUFFERING WITH OVERPRONATION OR FOR THAT FACT ANY OTHER FOOT CONDITION, PLEASE CALL OUR FOOT CLINIC AT 416-465-8737 TO TALK TO ONE OF OUR FRIENDLY STAFF.  YOU CAN BE SURE THAT YOU WILL ALWAYS BE PROVIDED WITH HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE AND THE BEST POSSIBLE HEALTH SOLUTIONS TO YOUR PROBLEM.
