Sample text

Bony deformities such as tibial torsions can distort the relationship of the soft tissue structures that support the platform upon which the arches are built. This influences foot mechanics. Development Ossification of the foot progresses from the hindfoot to the forefoot. The ossification of the talus and calcaneus begins before birth, while the process in the navicular does not begin until 3 years in males and 2 years in females. Except for the calcaneus, each of the bones of the hindfoot ossifies from one center, which appears during the fetal period.

Conversely the patella may follow the tibia. Then it will appear to be laterally displaced (‘grasshopper’ knee). A patella positioned superiorly is called patella alta, while one that rides closer to the trochlea is a patella baja. The tibia may develop intraosseous torsion in response to forces in the hip or foot. External or lateral torsion usually occurs in the proximal portion of the bone, resulting in a lateral tibial tubercle. This can increase the stresses acting on the patella tendon during knee flexion and can be a contributing factor in the development of Osgood–Schlatter disease.

Abnormal muscle tensions may exacerbate or impede rotation of the tibia. If, during extension, the tibia does not rotate laterally, then the medial meniscus will be compressed between the femur and tibia. Over time this may lead to meniscus inflammation, medial midline joint pain and eventual meniscus degeneration. Conversely, if the tibia does not medially rotate during flexion, the medial collateral ligament and the posterior cruciate ligament will be subjected to abnormal stretch. Abnormal motion mechanics in the relative positioning of the tibia and femur will increase the load on the menisci, alter tensions on the ligaments and affect resting length of the muscles acting on the knee.
