Subject: Ironman Triathlete
Note: This Athlete gave BodyPro Physical Therapy permission to publish the photographs of the evaluation.
Note: the presence of the onset bunion deformity - this is due to the medial drift of the foot due to over-pronation or flat feet.
Rear view of the collapsed foot
Note: the left lean of the body due to the collapsing of the arch - this is a compensation
Note: the right lean of the body due to the collapsing of the arch - this is a compensation
Bisecting the calcaneous
View of the forefoot varum in non-weight bearing position. Note that the forefoot is not perpendicular to the calcaneal bisection. Left foot
Right Fore Foot Varum Deformity
Verification of the bisection of the heel or calcaneous. Right foot

This photo demonstrates the collapsing of the arches and tilting inward of the heels or rear foot.
Note the excessive pronation (collapse of the arch) of the foot in single limb stance
Note: the collapse of the arch of the foot in single limb standing.
Finding Subtalar neutral position in standing.
Measuring Tibial Varum
Measuring tibial varum or the angle of the lower leg bone when the foot is in its natural resting stance position.
This helps to determine posting necessary to correcting foot mechanics and thus make the foot more efficient.
Subtalar Neutral position of the foot in standing. This demonstrates the vertical orientation of the heel or rear foot.
