It`s been recently said that running shoes do not correct pronation. Different studies have demonstrated that the use of motion control shoes does not reduce the incidence of injuries for their users. Well, I accept that. There is no evidence to think that modern running shoes are doing something for us.
But this does not mean that excessive pronation is not the cause of some running injuries, particularly those related to knee pain. At least it is usually mentioned as a cause for normal running injuries like liliotibial band sindrome and many others. I have read so in medical websites here and there, and I assume they mention this becasuse there is medical evidence for that (although somthing tells me that there may not be such evidence).
To sum up: despite running shoes are not the answer, is it not worth to try to correct excessive pronation when, for instance, a runner seems to have knee injuries? When I say correct, I mean excercise your lower legs and feet in order to make them stronger and decrease pronation.
