medially rotated

Flat foot is caused by _
Collapse of medial portion of longitudinal arch with eversion and abduction of forefoot

Damage to sciatic nerve causes _
Impaired extension of the hip
Flexion of the knee
Loss of dorsiflexion at ankle and eversion of foot
Damage to tibial nerve causes loss of _
Plantar flexion, impaired inversion because of paralysis of tibialis posterior, clawing of toes
