The Navicular Drop Test for Foot Overpronation

By: Physiotutors

In this video I'm going to show you how to perform the navicular drop test to assess the positioning of the talus or over pronation in the forefoot. An increased navicular drop is associated with an increased risk of overuse injuries such as medial tibial stress syndrome plantar fasciitis as well as patellofemoral pain syndrome. The navicular drop is defined as the distance the navicular tuberosity moves in standing as the subtalar joint is allowed to move from a neutral to a relaxed position. First palpate your patients navicular tuberosity and mark it with a pen.

To perform the test have your patient sitting or standing and bring the talus into neutral position. Then measure the distance from the ground to the tuberosity and mark it on a piece of paper. Now ask your patient to bear weight on the foot and measure the distance from the ground to the tuberosity again and mark it on the same paper. With this test we are talking about excessive navicular drop or over pronation with a difference of at least one centimeter and as you can see Andreas is right at the edge. Okay, this was our video on the navicular drop test.
