Supination Syndrome

Supination Syndrome

Common Medical Diagnoses:

  • Stress fracture (or history of one)
  • peroneal / fibularis muscle strain

Description:

During weight bearing, the ankle stays in a rigid or supinated posture rather than absorbing shock naturally as it should.

Treatment:

  • Adjust shoewear to a cushioned type of shoe.
  • Attempt to soften landing through the foot, knee, and hip.
  • Address any weakness problems with foot and ankle muscles or shortness issues with foot and ankle muscles – usually gastrocnemius and soleus tightness.
  • Improve joint mobility to allow for normal pronation.
