Pronation & Supination Explained

pronation and supination

 -Pronation & Supination Means SHOCK ABSORPTION-

Explained less technically…

the 33 joints per foot need to UNLOCK & then LOCK properly each time the foot hits the ground…

TO ABSORB SHOCK!

Pronation is when the 33 joints of the foot UNLOCK as the heel hits the ground. 

This is the beginning of shock absorption.

In order for the entire spring-like effect to work, the foot must quickly transition into supination.

Supination explains how the 33 joints LOCK to create the leverage needed to SPRING forward and onto the next step.

This transition between pronation & supination happens with every step.
How many dysfunctional steps do you take per day?

When this transition is dysfunctional, the shock wave of force as each foot hits the ground travels up into the ankle, knee, hip and spine creating a wear-and-tear pattern.

When this transition remains dysfunctional, you end up with foot problems like bunion, plantar fasciitis, big toe arthritis, hammer toe and Morton’s neuroma as well as problems higher up the kinetic chain like shin splints, knee pain, hip and spine pain.

That’s Pronation & Supination Explained!
