Much like an auto technician might uncover a vehicle’s suspension problem based on uneven tire wear; a chiropractor may suspect body misalignment problems by looking at the wear on the soles of walking and running shoes. While noticeable wear in the middle of the heel and the inner edge of the heel (the big toe side) may be indicative of “overpronation”, tread wear along the outer edge of the heel gives evidence of “supination”. When the foot pronates, the leg rotates inward, and the hip can become unaligned, leading to hip pain. Foot supination can also cause chronic knee and hip tendonitis and bursitis. A biochemical review by the chiropractor can help patients get on better footing. Maintaining proper body alignment, from head to toe, is important to overall health. For optimal musculoskeletal health, chiropractors help align not only the spine but the extremities as well. Many people visit a chiropractor because they are in pain, have poor posture, or are looking for injury prevention or pain relief. Our goal is to educate you on the benefits of the chiropractic adjustment, so you in turn can educate others. To schedule an appointment, please call our clinic at 860-621-2225. We are located at 200 Queen ST., Southington

PS Excessive supination is less common than excessive pronation.
