In brief: Pretty much...

We start out treating it with sympotmatically, mainly with a type of arch supports.
These can be custom made orthotics, made specifically for your individual feet, by seeing a podiatrist. For otc supports, i really like spenco medical products. Try the polysorb cross-trainer, walker-runner or total support styles to get more support in your shoes.

In brief: Flat foot.

Pronation is a bio mechanical term used to describe how the foot hits the ground during the gait cycle.
It can be pronated if the sub talar joint sits below neutral position of the joint. A flat foot can be caused by excessive pronation.
