Rolling over of the feet -
over pronation - causes the lower leg to rotate internally.
As a result, the pelvis is forced to tilt forward, which can
cause an increased curvature of the lower back. This is referred
to as 'poor body posture'. Especially after standing up-right
for longer periods the curvature in back will cause tightness
and stiffness of the lower back muscles. A contributing factor
to back pain is over pronation.
Advantage of orthotics: Orthotics
will control the amount of over pronation and thus reduce
the pain associated with this condition.
