Gait Video of Pronated Right Foot
See the pronated right foot. The patient has had lateral ankle surgery and post op the surgeon referred him to me for treatment of the severely pronated foot. Post operative pain is quite severe and the hope is if I can eliminate the pronation there will be less lateral ankle and subtalar joint impingement. You can tell how flat that right arch is, what you can not appreciate is that his heel is in severe valgus position (17 degrees everted). The initial orthotics I made for him were 35 degree Inverted which brought his heel position to 9 degrees everted and the second correction of 50 degrees Inverted with Medical Column Correction and Kirby Skive places him to 6 degrees everted.
See the second video with shoes on but no orthotic devices.
