When we land, our feet take an impact up to 3x of body weight. Our feet pronate naturally to cushion the impact.
Eversion angles of more than 18 degrees are correlated with higher occurence of foot injuries such as Achilles Tendonitis and Plantar Fasciitis. Excessive eversion also puts knee in awkward position during stance, often is the cause of Runner’s Knee (Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome)
Runners often take the route of using stability or motion control shoes. But using such shoes can further complicate the issue. It is recommended that understand the underlying cause of excessive eversion and work on it accordingly.
