  • occur
  • Composed of three cardinal plane components: subtalar eversion, ankle dorsiflexion, and forefoot abduction, these three distinct motions of the foot occur simultaneously during the pronation phase. (wikipedia.org)
  • Pronation should not occur past the latter stages of midstance, as the normal foot should then supinate in preparation for toe-off. (wikipedia.org)
  • arch
  • It runs from the heel bone to the toe and forms the arch of the foot. (foot-ankle-surgeon.co.uk)
  • The plantar fascia functions as a shock absorber and also supports the arch of the foot. (foot-ankle-surgeon.co.uk)
  • Plantar arch: The plantar arch in the human foot has an elastic spring function that generates energy for running but not walking. (wikipedia.org)
  • To complicate matters, one study done by Hylton Menz at the University of Western Sydney-Macarthur suggests that the methods for measuring arch height and determining whether someone is "flat-footed" or "high-arched" are unreliable. (wikipedia.org)
