    Hi Jo BB,
    The primary cause of a "Rocker Bottom Foot" is a congenital vertical talus.

    However, it can arise as secondary to a Charcot Foot.

    A Charcot foot is not necessarily a "Rocker foot", so why would you suggest "Charcot like"?

    When Podiatrist ring or write a referral to us for this type of client, they are often refer to them as a "rocker sole foot".
