Introduction: The cites received by a paper is the most common method used to determine its impact in a particular scientific field. Plantar fasciitis is one of the five most common skeletal muscle injuries in runners. With a multi-factor aetiology, this degenerative process of the plantar fascia occurs when it is repetitively exposed to tensile overload. This research...

The options for the surgical correction of fl atfeet are varied and can be signifi cantly infl uenced by a single surgeons experience and tendencies. An intimate understanding of the biomechanical infl uences that lead to fl atfeet and the varied conceptual approaches to the correction of these forces is fundamental. There are many combinations of procedures that...
