Stance phase dynamics

The events of the foot that occur during the stance phase of the gait cycle may be divided into three periods. The first period is described as the loading period and begins with the first contact of the foot with the running surface. Runners that have a heel-toe style of running, usually initiate running surface contact with the heel. In contrast forefoot runners usually make initial contact with the running surface with the front of the foot. The following events are described for runners that have a heel-toe style of running. During the loading phase, the heel makes initial contact with the running surface. This usually involves a brief transmission of force from the foot to the running surface. A controlled lowering of the forefoot to the running surface follows this. [Read more…]

Mechanisms of Running Injuries and Excessive pronation

During excessive pronation the foot enters the loading phase of stance in a position that allows it to make contact with the medial aspect of the foot earlier than normal. Alternatively the foot may reach the position of medial contact of the foot with the running surface earlier than expected. [Read more…]
