    This reference seems to correlate with the possibility that our foot posture greatly affects our adult lives with pathology and unwanted compensations.

    Casting these feet in STJ Neutral position and capturing their collapse does not make sense in these cases.

    Noting the positions of the young roup and comparing them to the older group would suggest that the younger group was overall in a more optimal functional position ans if we could maintain (preventive) or recreate that position (post collapse) our orthotic shells would be more effective.

    I wonder what the authors and readership thinks?
