What are the main causes of Supination?
What is Supination ?
Supination or Under Pronation is just opposite to flat feet as it includes the rising of an arch more than normal which is also known as pes cavus. It is more painful than flat feet as more stress is placed on the metatarsal ( the section of the foot between the ankle and the toes). High arches are treated by providing proper arch support to the foot through customized insoles. Supination (High arch) is contrary to OverPronation as it is the outward roll of the foot while walking or normal movement. Mild supination may occur while running and due to distorted gait, the heel lifts off. Whereas, over-supination may occur due to excessive strain on the muscles and tendons that stabilize the ankle and as a result of which the ankle rolls outwards and leads to an ankle sprain or total ligament rupture.
Shapecrunch provides Custom Orthotics and arch support sandals to reduce the pain in the sole
The pain experienced by the patient while walking is the major symptom of the high arch.
Cavus foot will lead to discomfort while standing for a longer duration, around the ball, and heel of the foot.
The high arch leads to calluses near the ball, heel, toes, and deformity around the toes areas.
Pain in the knees, ankle, and ankle sprains may be experienced by patients due to the instability and imbalance caused as the foot tilts forwards.
Foot drops is another neurological symptom of a high arch. The pain is felt on the outer edge of the foot and the patient’s ankle would roll forward.
Causes of Supination
High arch or supination is caused due to neurological disorder or health conditions mainly, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, stroke, Charcot - Marie - tooth diseases, or spina bifida.
Pes Cavus is hereditary in approximately 3/4th of the cases and may not involve any other health conditions.
Excessive weight and pressure that is put on the ball and heels of the foot is another cause of high arch foot.

Heel pain home remedy
Apart from using insoles or customized footwear, the following remedies are useful too
1. Apply ice pack on the back of the heel and all over the heel area.
2. Use essential oils to massage the area - use lavender, coconut, and rosemary oil as it would reduce the pain due to their anti-inflammatory properties
3. Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) add some Epsom salt in lukewarm water and dip your feet in the water and massage them gently
4. Use apple cider vinegar as it would help to take excessive calcium out of the bones and provide relief to the foot.
Plantar Fascia Stretches
Start by getting into a comfortable seated position. Take your affected foot and slowly bring it up over your opposite knee. Grab the toes of your sore foot and carefully pull them toward yourself. If you find reaching your toes in this position awkward, try grabbing a towel and wrapping it around your big toe to help you complete this exercise. Hold this stretch for 10 seconds and then relax. It’s recommended you repeat these 20 times to get the most out of this stretch.
To do this stretch correctly, you must start by placing yourself at arm’s length from the wall. Stretch both of your arms out in front of you and place your palms against the wall. Stretch one leg behind you, keeping your heel firmly on the ground. Bend your other leg at the knee in front of you. This exercise, although beneficial, can be uncomfortable in the beginning. Try not to push yourself too
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I am a sport person and highly require my foot and legs fitness. Due to vigorous exercise I was suffering from heel pain since more than 6 months. Doctors advised me to use orthotic insoles. Got the information about Shapecrunch through the Internet and contacted in the given number. The phone call was responded by jatin who seemed to be a knowledgeable and cooperating guy. My brother who was visiting me from USA also had similar problem and was prescribed for same. We both ordered total 4 pairs of insoles and got them made in just 3-4 days. We both are using them since then and now are in great relief. Happy with the service and the product. The staff is very cooperating, they even showed up the process of making these. Product are also very good, useful and value for money. Highly recommend it.
I had developed plantar fasciitis in June 2019 & had undergone physiotherapy, exercised for over two months with little improvement. Then I discovered Shapecrunch who recommended customised insoles after examination of my feet & underlying problem. I have flat feet. With regular use, my pain has almost vanished. I ordered a second pair recently which was delivered promptly.
What is needed is summerwear, i.e.sandals, chappals for wearing at home. I was surprised to receive a call today for this only which I look forward to.
Thank you, Shapecrunch; keep it up.
I was suffering from acute Planter Fascitis (heel pain) and with 2-3 days of wearing these insoles the pain has vanished! This is an awesome product and I use it everyday for 8-10 hours.
Strongly recommend Shape crunch insoles to anyone with foot issues.
