Over-pronation (also known as flat feet) is one of the most common foot conditions. It occurs when the arch of the foot flattens, or over-reaches, during weight-bearing. This causes the foot to roll inward and cause pain. Over-pronation can affect anyone, especially those who spend a lot of time on their feet, such as runners and dancers. If you are over-pronated, it’s likely because your muscles and tendons have a weak intrinsic curve in your arches. It’s important to understand why this weakness occurs and what you can do to correct it if you are over-pronated.
I have a guest video blog post for you today. It’s from Justin Price.
Justin answers the most common question he is asked during his courses and at the conferences he presents:
In the video, Justin shares with you:
- What over-pronation is
- What causes over-pronation
- How the shoes you are wearing can be making your pronation worse
- The influence of gluteus maximus on pronation
- How the iliotibial band and tibia affect pronation
Here is the “What Causes Foot Over-Pronation?” video from Justin Price.
Justin Price will be coming to Vancouver to present his course for the first and only time in March of 2011.
In this course, Justin will focus on Day One on the assessment side of things, and on Day Two, he will focus on what exercises to give based on the assessment.
I selected Justin as one of the international experts to bring to Vancouver because I have learned a lot from him regarding lower body assessment, and his foot reviews have been beneficial. Plus, I find his corrective exercises unique and quite different from others I have seen.
That’s it for today.
I will have a fascinating announcement on Wednesday for you – I can’t wait to tell you about it!
