Check this video out to learn more about the mechanics behind over-striding and what the big deal is with cadence manipulation!
Have you ever been told you over-pronate, or your arch collapses when you run? If so, you'll want to take a look at this video.
What could the ankle have to do with over-pronation and what does that have to do with knee pain? This video will help you understand why an orthotic might not always be the best solution for a collapsing arch and why it could lead to knee pain.
