Study Description
Brief Summary:

Tibial flat foot deformity is the most common reason for metatarsalgia. Flat foot deformity is a sign of degenerated problems such as weakness in ligament or fractures. Furthermore, metatarsalgia can be a sign of excessive load caused by sport activities or at work. The condition is very common at diabetics and patients with rheumatism.

The purpose of the study is to examine the load under the front foot at health people and patients with metatarsalgia. Furthermore, the researchers aim at being able to assess the best treatment of the flat foot deformity at each patient.
