When our feet roll inwards (called pronation), internal tibial rotation results, causing skewing of the knee joint and damaging the surrounding muscle structure.
Shin splints generally result from excessive pronation, which causes traction of the tendons and results in tightness and pain in the shins.
Excessive pronation increases the stress and traction placed on the calf muscles, causing inflammation and pain.
Lower Back Pain
When our feet roll inwards (excess pronation) this causes an anterior tilt of the pelvis, which results in tightening of muscles and lower back pain.
Most hip pain is caused by a biomechanical anomaly. A structural short leg (known as a true short leg because the bone is short) can cause the longer leg to jam into the hip joint creating pain and conditions like tendonitis, bursitis and osteoarthritis. In addition, if one foot rolls in (pronates) more than the other, this causes the leg to shorten, making the other leg functionally longer again resulting in hip pain and the conditions already noted. Other factors that cause hip pain are tight muscles in the lower limbs which can be easily analysed, assessed, identified and treated.
