What is Pronation?
Pronation is the natural act of the body spreading the impact of walking, jogging or running throughout the foot evenly. As the foot strikes the ground, the ankle naturally rolls inward absorbing the shock of the ground and mobilizing to the terrain.
What is Overpronation?
Overpronation is when the ankle of the foot rolls in past its normal 15° of inward rotation. The cause of this could be many thingssuch as foot type, biomechanics, or compensation strategies.
What is Supination/Underpronation?
Supination or Underpronation is the opposite of over-pronation, where instead of the ankle rolling in too much, the ankle doesn’t roll in enough causing the runner to be running mainly on the outside of their feet. The cause of this could be many things such as foot type, biomechanics, or compensation strategies.
