Pronated ankles

I have had severly pronated ankles all my life (am now 54)and have always worn orthonics, however, they do not help. I have trouble walking any distance, as in the grocery store etc. I have been trying to find the four quandrants of my feet and realize I never walked on my heels. For the past 2 years I have been trying to align my ankles over my heels and it is a slow process. Is there any treatment for severely pronated ankles other than orthonics? Can they be corrected? Also, my right leg was somehow twisted outward and I have been attempting to realign it by finding the 4 quafrants on my foot. It is affecting my hip and goes into by buttocks. Affecting the piriformis muscle. Could corrective shoes help? Would a podiatrist fit corrective shoes? As I try to correct my right foot my thigh and hamstrings seems to be turning inward. Any advise would be appreciated!
