    The medial longitudinal arch is supported extrinsically by the invertors (Tibialis anterior and T. posterior) and by the long flexors (Flexor hallucis longus and Flexor digitorum longus). Intrinsically, elongation of the foot is resisted by Flexor digitorum brevis and the plantar fascia.

    This is not the best way to complete your assignments, belkin..... have you read your coursebook?

    My advice is to think not about supinators - but anti-pronators. They're the same muscles, but are this way described much more accurately. Rob
