The ‘Overpronation’ Issue

This is one of those topic that is so nonsensical but it still consumes a lot of time to deal with all the myths. I first blogged about it here and more recently here. I still do not get why so many do not get it and so many think they are experts it in. Overpronation is no necessarily a problem – it is a problem if it contributes to the load in the tissues that is causing an injury. There are a zillion different causes of overpronation, so there is not one size fits all when it comes to treating it. This leads to so many myths and so much mistreatment of it. The issues surrounding the understanding of overpronation do not seem to be getting better, but getting worse! There is so much more work to be done and education to be undertaken. Pronation mythbusting never stops!
