Supinate and Supination

Supination [soo″pĭ-na´shun] – Belly up or palm up. The opposite of pronation.

  • To lie supine means you lay on your back.
  • If asked to supinate your hand, rotate it so your palm is up.

While I’d never ask you to supinate your foot, supination of the foot and ankle occurs when it rolls outward.
