Foot structure has been implicated as a risk factor of numerous overuse injuries, however, the mechanism linking foot structure and the development of soft-tissue overuse injuries are not well understood. The aim of this study was to identify factors that could predict foot function during walking.

Foot orthoses maybe used in the management of musculoskeletal disorders related to abnormal subtalar joint (STJ) pronation. However, the precise mechanical benefits of foot orthoses for preventing inj...
Lipomas are benign adipose masses that are rarely associated with synovial membranes. In addition, there are only a few reports describing synovial lipomas in the foot. No reported occurrence of this ...
Tibial coronal inclination is often recognized in everyday life, but the compensatory kinematic changes to maintain plantigrade of the hindfoot in response to tibial coronal inclination remain unclear...
Kinematic multi-segment foot models have been increasingly used to study foot function. The addition of kinetics to these models may enhance their utility; however, this been hindered by limitations i...
The in vivo kinematic characteristics of the tarsal joints during gait stance phase were still unclear in adult-acquired foot deformity (AAFD). This study included seven healthy subjects (fourteen fee...
The purpose of the study is to determine whether manipulation of the subtalar joint (one of the two joints of the ankle) has an effect on ankle range of motion in a group of ankles that ha...
Subtalar fusion is commonly performed in post-traumatic subtalar osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, posterior tibial tendon dysfunction, tarsal coalition and primary subtalar osteoarthr...
The purpose of this study is to describe normal dynamic computed tomography anatomy of hind foot in inversion/eversion movement, and to define diagnostic criteria for subtalar instability.
The study was designed by the principal investigator, Dr. Alastair Younger, and the St. Paul's Hospital Foot and Ankle Research Group, who will conduct the study. The study is being funded...
Pediatric flexible flatfoot is sometimes asymptomatic but it can also cause physical impairment, pain, and difficulty walking. We evaluate the radiographic effectiveness of intervention of...
Formed by the articulation of the talus with the calcaneus.
Devices used to support or align the foot structure, or to prevent or correct foot deformities.
The articulations extending from the ANKLE distally to the TOES. These include the ANKLE JOINT; TARSAL JOINTS; METATARSOPHALANGEAL JOINT; and TOE JOINT.
Deformity in which the foot is misaligned with respect to the TALUS in the ANKLE JOINT. While mostly congenital, as in CLUBFOOT, acquired deformities are included. Acquired talipedes are often associated with other foot deformities such as SYNDACTYLY and POLYDACTYLY.
Part of the body in humans and primates where the arms connect to the trunk. The shoulder has five joints; ACROMIOCLAVICULAR joint, CORACOCLAVICULAR joint, GLENOHUMERAL joint, scapulathoracic joint, and STERNOCLAVICULAR joint.
