Example text

Motion restriction at the articulations of the cuboid is usually present. The medial longitudinal arch is formed by the calcaneus, talus, navicular, cuneiforms and three medial metatarsal bones. This arch acts like a spring, absorbing the natural shocks that come from walking. The navicular is the keystone of this arch and is typically the primary area of dysfunction. When navicular movement is restricted, the weightbearing stress on the medial longitudinal arch is increased and the arch will flatten.

They are present at birth (Fig. 21). The menisci increase the articular surface area of the tibia and act as a cushion in weightbearing. The medial meniscus is attached to the articular capsule of the knee and the medial collateral ligament. The lateral meniscus is injured far less than the medial, with a ratio of about eight to one in In extension, the anterior cruciate ligaments stabilize the knee and prevent hyperextension. The tibia glides anteriorly under the femur with some external rotation and the patella draws superiorly.

In males, the segments begin to fuse in the third or fourth decade, in females somewhat later. Late in life, the first segment may fuse with the sacrum. The sacroiliac (SI) joints are synovial joints. They are auricular or C-shaped, with the apex (convex side) facing anteriorly (Fig. 9). The sacral surface of the joint is concave and lined with hyaline cartilage. The ilial surface is convex and lined with fibrocartilage. The articular surfaces are smooth at birth. During puberty they begin to roughen with weightbearing and ambulation.
