What is "pronation"? Is it bad?
Posted by Austin Reiter on 16 February 2017 12:37 PM

Pronation is simply the movement of the foot rolling inward as you take a step. This is a natural movement that helps reduce impact shock as your foot hits the ground, and it is both normal and expected that you will pronate as you walk.

Foot problems can arise if you over-pronate (your foot rolls inward too much when you walk) or if you supinate (your foot rolls outward when you walk). In cases of over-pronation or supination, an insole can assist in better stabilizing the movement of the foot to provide you with a more natural pronation.
