foot movement and pronation

When the foot is in overpronation,the inner surface of the ankle touches the ground. In this motion, the medial structures of the ankle are under strain. Many overuse injuries like plantar fasciitis and metatarsal pain, damage with the medial ligament are commonly associated with overpronation. Overpronation may have secondary effects on the lower limbs, such as increased rotation of the tibia, which may result in lower leg pain or knee problems.
