stabilizing the ankle

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Like most folks my body is not symmetrical. My left ankle does not pronate but the right one collapses easily. When bootfitters try to "correct" this with adjustments under the foot or under the boot my knee flexes outward and I feel off balance. Does it make any sense to try and stabilize the ankle around the ankle by supporting it inside the boot on the inside of the ankle?

try it and see if it works for you.  If it does, great.


also footbed support can come from either stuff under the arch (more support) or a thin wedge on the inside of the heel (various wedge)  both can help with correcting pronation.


Do you have a leg length difference too?  best to correct for that too.
