How to Correct Foot Pronation —powered by eHow.com
Toe Pain Can Be Caused By Excessive Foot Pronation may not require orthotics
Foot pronation happens when your foot turns inward too much when you walk. The stress and strain on the foot and especially the toes is more than normal and can cause foot or toe pain. In the video below, Dr. Robert Fennel, founder of the Chiropractic Hand And Foot Clinics of America, uses a foot model to show how foot pronation causes toe pain.
Orthotics Can Help Relieve Toe Pain From Foot Pronation
Orthotics are a common treatment to attempt to reduce excessive foot pronation and to relieve toe pain. Orthotics can be an effective treatment for toe pain. But you may not want to wear orthotics in every shoe…for the rest of your life. Gentle chiropractic manipulation can be applied to actually correct the structure of the foot. This can correct foot pronation, relieve toe pain and even eliminate the need to wear orthotics.
Orthotics Are Often Too Bothersome For Toe Pain Sufferers.
Orthotics frequently get worn out and are not replaced. Or people sometimes just get frustrated and quit wearing their orthotics. Custom orthotics can also be very expensive to replace. Women’s shoes are particularly difficult to wear with orthotics. So many people just decide to live with toe pain instead of wearing orthotics regularly.
