    As a research project I am doing I require some literature on the relevance of these particular aspects of the Foot Posture Index.

    The project aims to see if an incidence correlation exists between a deviation in rearfoot score on the FPI and the prevalence of injury. I have found a fair bit of info on the calcaneal eversion/inversion and the role that plays but I am currently lacking research on these aspects.

    Any help with journals or other areas I may want to look at would be extremely helpful.

  4. These two parts of FPI are taken from the works of Root et al but I don't know of any studies that show a correlation of these two parameters to injury.

    Thanks Kevin, I was looking for some published material to determine why the parameters were included. Of course they the obvious physical indicators of pronation/supination but nothing that can be referenced exists, or I still havent found it!
