Constraint and Nonconstraint of Foot and Lower Extremity Joints

One of the ideas not much discussed regarding joint motion in the foot and lower extremity is the idea of joint constraint. Antony Huson (see illustration below) has previously discussed the constraint and non-constraint mechanisms of the foot in his classic chapter “Functional Anatomy of the Foot”: Quote: THREE DIFFERENT MECHANISMS OF THE FOOT: CONSTRAINT AND NONCONSTRAINT MECHANISMS COOPERATE IN INVERSION AND EVERSION: In the complex inversion/eversion motion of the foot, a number of different but closely cooperating osteoligamentous mechanisms are involved.
