    The link between gravity drive (abnormal) pronation and hip kinematics is, at this point, is well understood:
    1. Abnormal pronation drives the innominates anteriorly (and indirectly the sacral base) Rothbart 2006
    2. This unlevels the spine which can result in spinal distortions (both kyphotic and scoliotic) Rothbart 2011

  4. Unlevels? Is that the same as dystobulerism or maybe sloperdosser syndrome? Difficult to tell. What's your thinking about hyper-drive pronation? Tesla used it on swans to help them run faster than kangaroos. Will it work on Covid or infertility?

    I first wrote of this link between the foot and pelvis in 1988 (gravity drive pronation drives the innominates anteriorly and unlevels the sacral base). My research was built on the earlier research done by Inman and Close, i.e., hip drive pronation. Since that time, many other papers have been published validating this link by repeating my research results.

    Also, at that time, I first suggested that chronic low back pain was, in many cases, a result of the aberrations in kinetics and kinesiology within the SI joint (again being validated by other research teams duplicating my findings).
