Foot strike pattern in children during shod-unshod running.

The purpose of this study was to determine the foot strike patterns (FSPs) and neutral support (no INV/EVE and no foot rotation) in children, as well as to determine the influence of shod/unshod condi...

How accurate is visual determination of foot strike pattern and pronation assessment.

Nowadays, choosing adequate running shoes is very difficult, due to the high number of different designs. Nevertheless, shoes have two main characteristics to fit runners' technique and morphology: dr...

Foot structure is significantly associated to subtalar joint kinetics and mechanical energetics.

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 underst...

The relationship between foot posture and plantar pressure during walking in adults: A systematic review.

Foot posture is a risk factor for some lower limb injuries, however the underlying mechanism is not well understood. Plantar pressure analysis is one technique to investigate the interaction between f...

Influence of custom foot orthoses on venous status: A quasi-experimental study.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Devices used to support or align the foot structure, or to prevent or correct foot deformities.

Distortion or disfigurement of the foot, or a part of the foot, acquired through disease or injury after birth.

Common foot problems in persons with DIABETES MELLITUS, caused by any combination of factors such as DIABETIC NEUROPATHIES; PERIPHERAL VASCULAR DISEASES; and INFECTION. With the loss of sensation and poor circulation, injuries and infections often lead to severe foot ulceration, GANGRENE and AMPUTATION.

Entrapment of the distal branches of the posterior TIBIAL NERVE (which divides into the medial plantar, lateral plantar, and calcanial nerves) in the tarsal tunnel, which lies posterior to the internal malleolus and beneath the retinaculum of the flexor muscles of the foot. Symptoms include ankle pain radiating into the foot which tends to be aggravated by walking. Examination may reveal Tinel's sign (radiating pain following nerve percussion) over the tibial nerve at the ankle, weakness and atrophy of the small foot muscles, or loss of sensation in the foot.
