Has anyone ever been diagnosed with UNDER pronating?

Everyone always seems to be doing the opposite

Supposedly around 70-80% of people over-pronate. 

Which says a lot. 

I know what youre getting at and I'm sort of with you.

That's because the opposite of overpronation isn't underpronation it's supination.

And if you are neither, then you are neutral.

I got some rather horrible tendonitis from over-supinating (ie underpronating).

 

This was caused by...some running shoes which were sold to me to stop me overpronating.

 

Now when I buy shoes I say thanks but I'd rather not have a gait analysis if it's all the same to you.

It doesn't necessarily mean you weren't overpronating but it certainly means you were sold the wrong shoes - it is possible to overcorrect the problem.

DF, i supinate. Although that means I can wear neutral shoes.

In fairness it's less damaging if you supinate wearing overpronating shoes, then the other way round, as there's less to correct.

To back that up, I ran my early half marathons in Nike Zoom Elites, which are tilted towards over pronators.

No problems....but in fairness the more you do and keener you get the more stuff that was never a problem in those carefree early days comes to light!

That's like getting bad advice off a doctor once, and the next time you get ill not bothering to go to a doctor!

I am a doctor. I don't listen to a word I say!

No, it's realising that you've been going to a homeopath.
