I made some comments at recent Boot Camps on the potentially injurious effects of forefoot varus posting on foot orthotics; we have had a number of threads in the past on forefoot varus . I have had a couple of emails about what I said, so it’s easier to post a generic reply here: Forefoot varus is very rare, but when it is present, the rearfoot has to pronate to bring the medial side of the forefoot down to the ground
The rest is here:
The Potentailly Injurious Effects of Forefoot Varus Posting
- Allopurinol side effects????
- any rationale for varus FF type post distal to 1st MP?
- Rearfoot eversion has indirect effects on plantar fascia tension by changing the amount of arch…
- Cam walkers and such, more efficacious in treatment of forefoot lesions than rearfoot?????
- Plantar forefoot fat pad atrophy does not occur in diabetes
