Abstract

Arthritis and Osteoporosis is a life changing event that can affect both physical and psychological well being. Foot disorders are most common symptoms in these conditions where dynamic activities are affected simultaneously. The purpose of this narrative review is to investigate the literature by summarizing findings of current evidence predicting dynamic foot motion. English journal articles focusing on dynamic foot motion were searched via PubMed using key terms as rearfoot, Foot Posture Index-FPI. Also other reference articles not indexed in PubMed were taken as reference list. Studies using plantar pressure systems and Biomechanical ankle platform proved useful to find out the foot disorders in 3D. Most commonly 2D measurements like medial arch angle, rearfoot angle, arch height are helpful in static foot measurements. Although no studies proved how useful these static foot measurements can predict dynamic foot motion and its clinical implications in physiotherapy.
