WHAT IS PRONATION DISTORTION SYNDROME?
Pronation distortion syndrome is characterized by excessive foot pronation (flat feet) with concomitant knee internal rotation and adduction (“knock-kneed”). This lower extremity distortion pattern can lead to a chain reaction of muscle imbalances throughout the kinetic chain, leading to foot and ankle, knee, hip and low back pain.
