A Combination foot also known as a Rock & Roll or Elvis foot is a foot that both over supinates and over pronates with each step. This means that the foot does not strike the ground in a flat planar way but rather on the heel strike and forward motion the foot is angled outward extremely (over supinating) and then angles inward (over pronating) during the toe off stage of the step.
Combination foot is caused by an abnormal walking gait. A person with this condition both over pronates (steps using the inside edge of their feet) and Over Supinates, (steps using the outside edge of their foot). The condition appears mostly in children and less so in adults. The condition can be hereditary.
Factors for Combination Foot include:
- Walking gait abnormalities,which place excessive stress on the ankles
- Over Pronation
- Over Supination (Under Pronation)
- Running or jogging, especially on hard surfaces
- Poorly fitted or badly worn shoes, especially those lacking appropriate arch support
- Excess weight and obesity
- Having either flat feet or high arches
People with combination foot often complain of an aching pain in the sole of the foot after standing for a prolonged period of time. Pain on the outside and inside edges of the foot. Calluses on the outside and inside edges of the foot.
Specialists will first check the shoes of a person they suspect of having combination foot and look for excessive wear on the inside and outside edges of the heel and forefoot.
A specialist will observe the walking gait of a patient from behind. The patients sole will be checked for calluses and corns on the outside and inside edges.
A 2ft custom made Orthotic puts an end to your foot pain caused by this painful condition. Conservative care is highly successful in the cavus high arch foot. An orthotic with a high lateral heel flange, a valgus post and a sub-first metatarsal cutout can balance the foot. Often, the first ray is plantarflexed and a cutout of the first metatarsal head is essential for forefoot balancing. In severe ankle instability cases, an over the counter ankle-foot orthotic or a custom ankle-foot orthotic can be beneficial in balancing the foot and ankle. Consideration of a first ray cutout should also be part of the bracing process.
