Foot posture (‘overpronation’) and the risk for overuse injury

I hate re-litigating an issue that I have written about so many times before ( here , here , here , here , here , here and here ) but here goes anyway: Early in my career, ‘overpronation’ was widely considered a problem, but by the late eighties I started to say that ‘overpronation’ was not a problem and since then have been widely preaching that and even wrote an opinion piece back in 1998: ‘ Is Overpronation Really a Problem? ‘ because that is what the evidence was starting to show. The research was mixed, some studies showing it was and some studies showing that it wasn’t a problem
