Midfoot Flexibility

What it Measures

Angle of the mean line of plantar metatarsal heads articulated and the AAA line.

Significance

  • High significance
  • The ability of the foot to be in mechanical concert and stabilize the body against the ground

Normal Value

  • 35° (inversion)
  • 15° Reverse (eversion)

Exam containing this measurement:

BIQ 24

BIQ 10

About

If the Metatarsal Head Mean Alignment finds the equilibrium of the midfoot, the midfoot flexibility test does just as the name of this test suggests. This test reveals flexibility of the midfoot around the equilibrium of the metatarsal heads and the degree of rotational stability found in the Metatarsal Head Mean Alignment. This test is wonderful for examining the amount of support or lack of support an orthotic will need to provide to a patient to relieve and ease painful or pathological tissue.

Effect of Deviation

Limited flexibility (ROM) will pass mechanical responsibility to the available excursion of the STJ Excessive flexibility will pass mechanical responsibility to the tensile loading tissues such as the PTT
