Pronation

Good day; Doctor Gabe Rodriguez here. I would like to talk to residents of Sioux Falls today about a condition called pronation.

Pronation is when the side of the foot rolls inward when walking. It can be characterized as an abnormal leaning in of the foot that can cause stress on the ligaments. This stress then can cause painful conditions such as plantar fascitis, in which the ligament that connects the heel with the ball of the foot is torn and inflamed.

If you are one of the many Americans that has pronation when they walk, I invite you to come see me, Doctor Rodriguez, at my office here in Sioux Falls. Click here to read my report on plantar fascitis and to make an appointment: http://siouxfallspodiatrist.net/heel
