Measuring Intrinsic Muscle Strength

Importance and challenges of measuring intrinsic foot muscle strength Achini Soysa, Claire Hiller, Kathryn Refshauge and Joshua Burns Journal of Foot and Ankle Research 2012, 5:29 doi:10.1186/1757-1146-5-29 Quote: Background Intrinsic foot muscle weakness has been implicated in a range of foot deformities and disorders. However, to establish a relationship between intrinsic muscle weakness and foot pathology, an objective measure of intrinsic muscle strength is needed. The aim of this review was to provide an overview of the anatomy and role of intrinsic foot muscles, implications of intrinsic weakness and evaluate the different methods used to measure intrinsic foot muscle strength
