My feet rolls/I have flat feet do I need to get them checked?

Pronation or rolling in is a perfectly normal movement during walking and on its own not something you need to worry about. If the movement is excessive or compromising the way you walk though it can begin to contribute to injuries. Overpronation has been linked to conditions like plantar fasciitis, MTSS, achilles tendinopathies and posterior tibialis tendon dysfunction. We can help you determine how much is too much if you’re not sure the safest thing is to ask, that’s what we’re for after all. We can help explain whether the way you’re walking or running is likely to be problematic and guide you to a solution if it is.
