Reverse Morton's Extension to Sulcus

Download as PDF >

Function:

  • Planterflexes 1st metatarsal head relative to lesser metatarsal heads
  • Increases 1st MTP range of motion
  • 2nd -5th metatarsal head cushioning
  • Sulcus length reduces forefoot bulk

Clinical Indication:

  • Functional Hallux Limitus
  • Lesion beneath 1st metatarsal head
  • Sesamoiditis
  • Rigid plantarflexed 1st ray

Myolite material reverse Morton’s frame-extension to sulcus

About:
A Reverse Morton’s extension is a Myolite padding that begins at the superior distal edge of the orthotic frame, terminates just distal to sulcus (just past the metatarsal heads), and is placed only beneath the 2nd -5th metatarsal heads, excluding the 1st metatarsal head. Its medial edge does not extend past the 1st interspace, and the medial edge can be left unskived upon request.

*CLINICAL PEARL
A 1st ray cut out modification is also recommended to accompany this extension if increased flexibility and less interference with the sesamoids is desired.
