Kohler;s diseae
avn kohler's disease
legg calv perthes dieas
avn fothe proximal femoral epiphys
what joints makeup the MTJ
calcaneo cuboid and talo navicualr joint
During cosled chain pronation the the MTJO ___ and the MTJL ____
During closed chaine supination the MTJO ___ and the MTJL ___
During closed chain pronation the MTJO pronates and the MTJL supinates
During closed chain Supination the MTJO supinates and the MTJL pronates
What happens with the foot during contact phase
- first heelstrike,
tibilasi santerior allows the forefoot to slowly lower to contact the ground
- when the forefoot contacts the groudn the STJ pronates casuign the MTJO to pronate andthe MTJL to supinate in order to keep the forefoot on the ground
when the calcaneus hits the ground it is supinated 2-3 degrees, the internal rotation of the leg cause the foot pronate. As the foot passes from a supinated to a pronated position the STJ passes through neutral postion.
After the STJ has proante dthe calcaneus is 4 degrees everted
pronation of the foot unolck the 1st ray which dorsiflexes 11 degrees
In limb length discrepancies which foot pronates, which foot supinates
long limb pronates
short limb supinates
What happens biomechanically at End Contact/Midstance
At the endof contact phase the foot is maximally pronated
toe-off stars, this pulls the foot forwad and casue the trailng limb to internally rotates and enter swing . The internal rotation of the swinging limb cause an external rotation of the pelvis on the weight bearing side. It is the this external rotation fo the wigh bearing limb that ends pronation and intiates resupination
what is the strongest pronator of the foot
peroneus brevis
What is the strongest pronator of the foot?
Tibialis posterior
what is the function of Peroneus logns
pulls down 1st ray
aids in wight transfer from lateral to medial column
acts as an evertor in open chain pronation
actas a funcional supinator in close chain
What is the function of the Flexor hallucis longus
supports the head of the talus
supports the proximal phalanx of the ast ray
minor function fo holding down the distal phalanx
How much does the hallux need to dorsiflex in toe off
65 degrees
what is supination of a foot?
a foot is supinated when it adducted, inverted, and plantarflexed
what is pronation of a foot/?
a FOOT is pronated when it is abducted, everted, dorsiflexed
What is turf toe? and treatment?
occurs from hyperextension or hyperflexion fo the 1st MPJ and IPJ, but if you have to pick one pick dorsiflexion.
Treat: rest 2-3 weeks, nSaids help, orthotics possibly with stiff forefoot and toe plates.
How might a patient describe an achilles tendon injury?
-Did not experience much pain when the tendon ruptures
-heard an audible "pop"
-felt like somebody kicked me in the back of the ankle
-numbness set in form the knee down
-feeling for the achilles tendon -nothing was there area felt like Jello
What difference does the location fo the achilles tendon tear make in treatment?
if tear is 2-6 cm above the attachment tothe calcaneus, surgery is necessary due to poor blood supply
If the tear is 6 cm or more above the calcaneu casting is acceptable
What is a normal course of post surgicla repair for tear of achilles tendon
casted 6 weeks post-op
rehab and condition for 6 weeks
return to full activity in 6 months, maybe 4 months with accellerated program
What is the most common ligament torn in the ankle?
Most common ligament torn is the anterior talofibular.
What are the symptoms of fully compensated forefoot varus
hellbings sign

Submet 2 keratoma
What will you see radiologically on a DP x-ray of forefoot varus foot
bulge on medial side of foot

Hallux limitus rigidus causes a _______ bunion
Halluxx Abducto Valus casue a _____ bunion.
Hallux limitus rigidus causes a dorsal bunion
