Re: Functional versus Osseous Forefoot Varus

Generally x-rays do not show this. The reason is an x-ray is a 2 dimensional representation of a 3 dimensional object.

Forefoot varus by definition is a relative inversion of the forefoot on the rearfoot.

As far as the question of the orthotics goes, I might disagree with your statement since there are many types of orthotics and variations.

Full-length viscoelastic insoles incorporating areas of softer density in the heel and metatarsal region. Raised metatarsal pad aids in desired realignment of metatarsal heads.
