Supination Resistance Test for Degree of Pronation Force

     Podiatrists, and other health care providers, design orthotic devices and make other recommendations based on problems related to the patient's over pronation. This one test called the Supination Resistance Test can give the clinician some feel of how easy or hard that patient's foot will be to correct. Along with other static tests like functional hallux limitus, or heel bisection positioning, this test can be used to note the asymmetries in the feet you are treating. These findings can play a role in my treatment of patients if I can predict which patients will need more correction than average, and which patients will need more correction on one foot versus the other.
