Supination of the foot - Rolling out feet
Supination is a movement of the foot that is seen in normal walking.
When the foot remains in a supinated position during walking often overuse symptoms of the lateral column of the foot, peroneal muscles and knee occur.
In general terms supination of the foot is when the foot rolls to the outside. To be technically correct however supination is a tri planar motion that involves inversion, adduction and plantar flexion of the foot and ankle.
A supinated foot has the characteristic appearance of being rolled towards the outside of the foot.
People with supinated feet generally suffer with lateral foot instability and inversion ankle sprains.
- Physiotherapy to rehabilitate damage from ankle sprains and to train proprioception around the ankle
- Orthotics – usually custom made to add stability to the lateral aspect of the foot
- Ankle braces to add stability during activity
- Surgery – if recurrent ankle sprains are likely to damage the articular surfaces of the ankle joint
