Tibialis posterior (TP) dysfunction is a common painful complication in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), which can lead to the collapse of the medial longitudinal arch. Different theories have been developed to explain the causality of tibialis posterior dysfunction. In all these theories, pain is a central factor, and yet, it is uncertain to what extent pain causes the observed biomechanical alterations in the patients. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of experimental tibialis posterior muscle pain on gait mechanics in healthy subjects.

Ankle-foot orthosis (AFO) can improve gait in stroke patients. Addition of plantar flexion resistance (PFR) can improve the first foot rocker function. However, the effect of changing the PFR on the a...
The biomechanical abnormalities in patients with posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTTD) have been described, but few studies have investigated biomechanical chains of adjacent joints. Therefore, w...
The Hintegra® arthroplasty provides inversion-eversion stability, permits axial rotation, ankle flexion-extension, and improvements of the gait patterns are expected up to 12 months of rehabilitatio...
Studies on anaesthetised animals have revealed that nociceptors can excite fusimotor neurones and thereby change the sensitivity of muscle spindles to stretch; such nociceptive reflexes have been sugg...
Irreducible fracture dislocation of the ankle is a rare condition. Multiple cases have been described throughout the literature. Different known etiologies involve the distal fibula, deltoïd ligament...
The goal of this project is to assess the effects of an ankle strap on the effectiveness of a laterally-wedged insole with ankle strapping in reducing knee symptoms and improving static an...
This study aims to analyze the changes in plantar support after the technique of deep dry puncture in the posterior tibial. The data will be analyzed by a baropodometer which will record t...
A pilot study was conducted, randomized, triple-blind study with allocation concealment. Which consisted in the application of KT in the anterior tibial muscle for 24 hours. 14 subjects we...
An exoskeleton ankle robot will be developed to correct the drop foot problem of the stroke patients or the elderly with muscle weakness at the ankle joint. The ankle robot will identify t...
This project proposes to examine the difference in effectiveness of fracture boots and carbon fiber braces in the management of gait abnormalities and pain relief due to ankle pain from ar...
Excessive periodic leg movements during sleep that cause micro-arousals and interfere with the maintenance of sleep. This condition induces a state of relative sleep deprivation which manifests as excessive daytime hypersomnolence. The movements are characterized by repetitive contractions of the tibialis anterior muscle, extension of the toe, and intermittent flexion of the hip, knee and ankle. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p387)
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. (From Foot Ankle 1990;11(1):47-52)
A chronic PELVIC PAIN characterized by pain deep in the buttock that may radiate to posterior aspects of the leg. It is caused by the piriformis muscle compressing or irritating the SCIATIC NERVE due to trauma, hypertrophy, inflammation or anatomic variations.
The anterior and posterior arteries created at the bifurcation of the popliteal artery. The anterior tibial artery begins at the lower border of the popliteus muscle and lies along the tibia at the distal part of the leg to surface superficially anterior to the ankle joint. Its branches are distributed throughout the leg, ankle, and foot. The posterior tibial artery begins at the lower border of the popliteus muscle, lies behind the tibia in the lower part of its course, and is found situated between the medial malleolus and the medial process of the calcaneal tuberosity. Its branches are distributed throughout the leg and foot.
