The Adult Paralytic Foot

Sean A. Matuszak, MD, Abstract

The adult paralytic foot is a common clinical entity. It has numerous neurologic, systemic, and traumatic causes that result in muscle imbalance and foot deformity. A thorough physical examination and diagnostic work-up, as well as an understanding of the relevant functional anatomy, are essential to proper management. Treatment goals include the establishment of a plantigrade foot, elimination of deforming forces, and, when possible, restoration of active motor control.
