    with a corn on plantar surface of foot, I'm assuming an antalgic gait would present, but i'm struggling to find how the phases would differ from normal gait. i need to reference for an essay, any pointers/advice most welcome. thanks for your time.

    One would expect to see a reduced stance time on the effected side and quite possibly if bad enough a positive trendelenburg as well. To break it down further, would depend on where on the foot the corn was. For example, reduction in terminal stance if the corn was forefoot, and reduced stance with early heel rise or no heel contact at all if at the rearfoot. A forefoot corn might also give a reduction in pelvic rotation due to apprehension of loading on the effected side as well. All of which lead to overuse syndromes on the contralateral if left unchecked for too long.

    just my ramble.

    You might do better posting your query in the "Biomechanics" section of the Forum as people don't always read the "Introductions" section,
