It is definitely worth making the half hour drive from Sugar Land to Katy, TX when you have the chance to participate in a worthy cause like the Run4TheChildren race. This event helps raise funds to help offset the cost of adoption, which can be upwards of $30,000. UNICEF estimates there to be 163,000,000 orphaned children in the world, and adoption is the best way for them to be loved and actually have a family. If you are interested in running the 4 miles (or the official 2.6 mile shortcut!) on February 14, we hope that you have been training and staying alert for any overpronation or overuse conditions you may experience.

Man Running on Track

Wait, you don’t know about overpronation? Well, let us explain that for you. With every step you take, your foot goes through a natural rolling motion that is intended to assist in providing shock absorption. This is fine when everything works as it should, but that isn’t always the case. A decent number of people overpronate—their rolling motion is excessive, typically due to flat feet—and this can lead to injuries.

Some of the injuries suffered by those who overpronate are centered on the ankle, knee, and hip joints (and the back). In addition to the foot rolling excessively, this biomechanical issue causes the lower limbs to rotate too far, which stresses the ligaments, tendons, and muscles.

Shin splints, plantar fasciitis, and Achilles tendinitis are common overuse injuries that can be found in runners who pronate excessively. The good news is that when these conditions are found to be caused by overpronating, they are often treated effectively with the use of orthotics.

Orthotics are customized, prescribed inserts that we make for you at our office. They are different from the mass-produced inserts you can buy at retail stores that are best left to providing extra cushioning or arch support for older shoes.

When you experience injuries due to overpronation issues, Sugar Land’s Vargas Foot & Ankle Specialists is the smart choice for helping you find the pain relief you need. Our leading experts will accurately diagnosis your condition and then create an effective treatment plan to lay your pain to rest and allow you to get back to living your life.
