    Hi there! I have gradually developed a worsening pronation throughout the teenage years. My feet are functionally flat (ie.. the arch only collapses when I stand). I have been prescribed orthotics which are half shoe ones that have been moulded to my feet by the physio department at my local hospital. As a young adult, I now experience increasing knee and hip clicking (most of the time), lower back ache and stiff knee joints. I am wondering what do now as I believe this is due to my overpronating feet. Which particular exercises would you recommend in my case? Would you recommend any other intervention ie... splints/ surgery?

    Many thanks!

    Depends what is causing the "overpronation"
    Stretching will help if it caused by tight muscles
    Strengthening exercises will help if its caused by weak muscles
    Foot orthotics will help if its a bony alignment issue in the feet
    etc etc

    Suggest you get a proper diagnosis first and then decide what to do next.
