About:
A proximal post grind off reduces the lever angle from the proximal, plantar calcaneus to the axis of the ankle joint. Reduction in this lever length reduces the force required by the anterior tibialis to decelerate plantar flexion following heel strike. This modification is essential for patients who are experiencing shin splints.
