Our expert says:
There are many running injuries that can be caused by excess pronation, another way of describing a collapsed arch. Exercises such as you have described will help with strengthening the muscles but will not alter the shape of your collapsed arches. I suggest that you have an assessment as to exactly which running shoe you need as well as an analysis of your running to see if you don't need additional arch support when running.
