RUNNING, PRONATION & ANKLE STRENGTH

First things first, what is pronation?

According to a foot doctor, pronation is the movement of your ankle and foot rolling inwards (towards your arch) when you walk and run, if your ankle is bodering you, you might have an injury, so getting a ankle injury treatment is necessary. It is a part of natural movement that helps absorb shock in the lower body. Supination is the opposite of pronation (the ankle and foot rolling away from your arch), and also occurs with every step; however depending on the movement a person may end up in need of a minimal incision foot surgery salem or. Ankle injuries are seen as not that serious, but they can be if you don’t seek the right treatment. Total Ankle Replacement Surgery has been considered one of the best procedures for people who have not been able to recover correctly for them their injuries.

So why is pronation bad?

Pronation has developed a bad reputation. Why? I am not really sure. However, I would argue that the emphasis needs to move away from pronation and towards ankle and foot strength and stability, if you are hurt make sure to look for help with a pediatric foot specialist.

Thе energy соѕt оf runnіng оn artificial limbs is muсh greater thаn thе аmоunt of еnеrgу аblе bоdіеd individuals rеԛuіrе tо run.


Thе аmоunt оf еnеrgу nееdеd to run іѕ grеаtеr fоr individuals with amputations above thе knее compared tо individuals wіth аmрutаtіоnѕ bеlоw thе knее аnd еvеn grеаtеr fоr those wіth аmрutаtіоnѕ on both ѕіdеѕ.

So then what running shoes should I choose?

Despite all of the arguments of minimalist runners vs. pronation vs. padding, it turns out that research is suggesting one simple thing. You should choose the runners that are comfortable for you!

Here is an awesome video that discusses the importance of shoe comfort, pronation, and ankle strength and stability. It also discusses where rehab and injury management for running injuries are heading. The video was produced by The University of Calgary’s, Human Performance Lab.
