What is Foot Overpronation?

overpronation

-Excessive Foot Pronation, aka Overpronation, aka Foot Failure-

-What You Just Watched Was Overpronation-

Watch closely in the above video and you’ll see how the arch continues to drop well beyond its ideal limit…

this is where we get a bit technical…

failing to stiffen and prolonging the transition into the propulsive stage of gait known as supination.

Specifically at :05 you’ll see the arch hit the ground and “squish” out which is why you’ll often hear people say they have a wide foot.

-Shock Absorption is an Important Foot Function-

Each foot is designed to work as a powerful spring when properly aligned in order to fight off the downward stress of your body and gravity.

Pronation & Supination describe how the feet work while attempting to do this.

When foot pronation and supination happens perfectly, you’ve got a great spring and healthy feet.

In conclusion, overpronation is the absolute failure of each foot to adequately support the body against gravity.
