High Arched Feet & Supinated Foot

High arched feet: what are they?


Oversupination (hyper-supination) is far more rare than overpronation and causes problems for runners and other athletes, as in this position the foot is less able to provide shock absorption. It therefore predisposes the athlete to:


  • Shin splints
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Ankle sprains
  • Stress fractures of the tibia, calcaneus and metatarsals
