Functional versus Osseous Forefoot Varus
Do X-rays show osseous forefoot varus?
Is this how one distinguishes between osseous and functional forefoot varus (also referred to as forefoot supinatus deformity)? I went to a podiatrist who said I had forefoot varus. I went to an orthopedic surgeon who said that he saw no evidence of forefoot varus in the X-Rays.
I see on the web that if you are given orthotics for osseous forefoot varus, which I was, but have functional forefoot varus, damage is done to the first metatarsophalangeal joint.
