Good day, I went for a foot message after a 2 week walking tour. The spa fitness instructor came to do a foot print analysis and said I put to much pressure on my fore foot, supination or something. He said thats why my knees hurt, is it true?

7 doctors agree

In brief: Maybe

get shoe soft sole with arch support inserts and wear great mesh type sneakers but if knee hurts could be the knee, get an xray and if chronic pain [over 2-3 months ] and knee seems to give way[collapse when walking ] or locks up like a ratchet can be meniscus tear or ligament damage.
do you do jerky exersizes like jumping rope or injure your knee? if so need mri

get fit for orthotics and examination are necessary.

A lot of forefoot pressure is due to an over tightened Achilles’ tendon So need to stretch the Achilles

In brief: Possibly

footprint analysis can be "helpful" however not as accurate or diagnostic as an orthopedic or podiatry examination, coupled with x-rays.
The analysis is useful but not therapeutic.
