Over pronation

(3 Posts)

I have hyper mobility and my feet pronate inwards, the right foot is especially uncomfortable.

I have shoe inserts from the NHS podiatrist and they are good ones, but my right foot is still pronating in.

I think it's due to ankle weakness.

Can anybody recommend anything that might help? I have an ankle support which I wore at work today.

Physio? I had exercises as a teen to strengthen my ankles.

Walk around barefoot at home if you can.
Practice standing on one leg
Practice standing on tip toes
Practice standing on tip toes on one leg
Stand on one leg on a cushion
Stand on one leg on tip toes on a cushion
Sit down, feet on a towel flat on the floor, use your toes to scrunch uo towel
Pick up things with your feet
Sitting down stretch legs out in front, loop a belt/resistance band under your toes and tension. Try and flex your feet forward/point your toes
Tie a resistance band/bike inner tube to something solid at floor level, sit on floor, loop feet into band and try and flex feet towards you.
Stand with your toes on a step, drop your heels slowly and then move to tip toes slowly.

To make balance exercises easier use a wall or chair
To make them more challenging close your eyes.
