“Thank you for you comment. This is a great question. This article on the foot, ankle and knee addresses some of the most common musculoskeletal imbalances that a health and fitness professional will encounter. Overpronation is much more prevalent than oversupination. As such, overpronation and its related compensatory patterns elsewhere in the body are discussed in this introductory article. You will find that some of your client's oversupinates. However, this is caused by less common compensations. For example, if someone shifts their weight onto one leg more than the other this can cause the foot to supinate as their weight rolls to the outside of the foot that holds more of their body weight. Alternatively, someone may have a leg length discrepancy where they may try to lengthen the shorter leg by raising the arch of the foot (i.e., supinate). There are many other patterns that can cause oversupination. However, as the majority of the population overpronates it is far more advantageous to focus on explaining this deviation in this article that focuses on the fundamentals of structural assessment”.
