Pronation Analysis through Running Warehouse
Excessive Pronation while you walk or run can be a cause of many injuries. This is a nice video on the evaluation of your amount of pronation. Because high arch, normal arch, and flat feet can all overly pronation, the wet foot test is interesting but can be misleading. To a lesser degree, the forefoot wear test can be influenced by the terrain you run, and your strike pattern (heel strike, midfoot strike, or forefoot strike). So, I believe the video tape method is the most reliable. Running Warehouse offers a free evaluation if you send them a clip from you phone or tablet. Hopefully, there is not too many strings attached. Happy Running!!!
