A short video clip from Podiatrist Andrew Bull, a member of our health professional network on foot & ankle pronation and hypermobility.
You will see in the video 2 black lines on the patient’s ankles. If you watch these closely when the patient steps off the orthotics, you can see that the angle between the lines changes as the foot returns to its unsupported state. You can also observe the bone below the ankle drop towards the ground.
Pronation is very common in the hypermobile body and can cause foot, leg and lumbar spine pain. You don’t need a referral to see a podiatrist in Australia.
