Pronation Guide

Posted by admin 14/11/2017 0 Comment(s) Latest Articles,


Pronation is part of the natural movement of the human body and refers to the way your foot rolls inward for impact distribution
upon landing. Understanding your pronation type can help you find a comfortable running shoe.
i. Underpronators (supinators) need a lot of cushioning to avoid strong impact
ii. Neutral pronators can wear a wide variety of shoes
iii. Overpronators should look for support or structured cushioning shoes



When your foot strikes the ground, it rolls inward to absorb the shock, and the arch supports on average three times your body
weight. People who roll inward too much or not enough can experience running injuries due to less effective shock absorption.




How Your Foot Contacts the Ground: outer side of
the heel hits the ground at an increased angle with
little or no normal pronation, causing a large
transmission of shock through the lower leg.
Push Off: pressure on smaller toes on outside of
foot. Considered Injuries: plantar fasciitis, shin splints,
ankle strain.
Foot type: high arches.




How Your Foot Contacts the Ground: foot lands on
outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb
shock and support body weight Push Off: even distribution from the front of the foot.
Considered Injuries: less likely due to effective shock
absorption, but neutral runners are not immune to injury.
Foot Type: normal-size arches




How Your Foot Contacts the Ground: foot lands on
outside of heel, then rolls inward (pronates) excessively,
transferring weight to inner edge instead of ball of the foot
Push Off: big toe and second toe do majority of the work
Considered Injuries: shin splints, plantar fasciitis, bunions, heel spurs
Foot Type: low arches or flat feet
