For some people, over-pronation is caused by an anatomical abnormality—legs that are different lengths, loose ligaments or bowed legs, for instance. However, many people who over-pronate developed the abnormal gait in response to impact. If impact can cause over-pronation, then impact reduction can help prevent it.
What It Takes to Prevent Over-Pronation
Excessive impact can cause people to shift weight-bearing to the inside (medial side) of their feet. If not corrected, the abnormal gait can cause misalignment and pain from the feet to the lower back. To prevent over-pronation, footwear must:
- Reduce impact
- Provide arch support
- Stabilize the foot
Preventing over-pronation may require specialty shoes and/or after-market products, like orthotics.
Z-CoiLs Have It All
Z-CoiL® Pain Relief Footwear® provides everything you need to prevent over-pronation.
The unique spring-loaded heel reduces impact by up to 60% with each step. The spring is also adjustable—it can be rotated to add resistance to the medial (inside) side of the foot, effectively correcting over-pronation, even in severe cases.
The built-in Z-Orthotic™ provides rigid support from heel to mid-foot to keep ligaments from moving beyond their normal threshold. The orthotic is ergonomically designed to provide arch support, and cushioned insoles allow you to supplement the arch support to accommodate higher arches.
