The Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association (CMTA) in April announced a study sponsored by the Glenolden, PA-based nonprofit found the three leading procedures for treating heel deformities don’t correct the problem adequately.

The results found none of the techniques provided adequate correction of the deformity
