    The findings of this article correlate well to the rigid/stable rearfoot/flexible forefoot FFT's that has been previously published ( http://www.zimbio.com/The stock mar...tional Foot Type Closed Chain Characteristics ) as the most common foot types presenting with single 2nd ray pathology and the flexible rearfoot/flexible forefoot FFT as the most common foot type presenting FFT presenting multiple ray pathology but always including the 2nd.

    This peer reviewed article reinforces foot centering theory.
    The advantage of utilizing functional foot typing to make diagnostic predictions that allow for preventive care is reinforced by this article.

    What if the plantar plate was simply stretched or lengthened but not injured?

    Wouldn't this elongated and distorted lever arm cause instability and the same clinical impact as a transection?

    I suggest that is the more common problem in lesser toe dysfunction than an actual "injury" or transection.

    If my suspicions are correct, then wouldn't a positional change in the architecture of the lesser MP Joints in the direction of reducing M-P Joint prominence cause Davis's Law to stabilize the plantar plate over time?
