Abstract

INTRODUCTION: The movement of plantar fascia under the foot has been characterized by foot arch strain in vitro (Kogler, Solomonidis, & Paul, 1995). The characteristics of the foot arch strain under the static and dynamic conditions in excessive pronators are not well known. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to investigate the foot arch strain during two legs, one-leg standing and walking in excessive pronation.
