    I'd agree. Mean maximum dorsiflexion of ~30deg/20deg (when sitting/standing respectively) in the 'hallux rigidus' group. A reasonable debate of how this entity should be 'diagnosed' should probably follow.

    Also, can't help but think the term 'flexibility' used throughout this paper should've just been replaced with 'stiffness'?
     
  5. Agree with that Ian, that they should be discussing stiffness not flexibility
