In brief: No, Everyone can
Supination is a type of muscle movement of the elbow, like flexing and extending.
You supinate when you turn your palm up. Everyone can do this, unless there is a muscle or nerve injury. Supination can also refer to a way of walking so that pressure is unevenly distributed against the outside of the foot, causing pain.
