navicular drop

navicular drop

decrease in the distance between the inferior aspect of navicular and the plantar plane (support surface) in a non-weight-bearing foot and weight-bearing foot (see navicular height)

Another aim of the study is to investigate the relationship between MTSS and the pronation indicators such as medial longitudinal arch deformation and navicular drop.
Medial longitudinal arch and navicular drop measurements
The medial longitudinal arch (MLA) angle, the MLA deformation and the navicular drop were measured on both sides by marking three points according to Bandholm.
Also, those with a larger navicular drop (a measure of arch flattening when bearing weight) were 3.
Recent results also showed that neuromuscular electromyostimulation reinforcement (NMES) of MLA muscles may decrease the navicular drop (Fourchet et al.
The present results also confirmed the findings mentioned in two recent studies and reporting respectively a significant decrease of the navicular drop (Fourchet et al.
The FAST protocol involving intrinsic and extrinsic foot/ankle muscles may appear to be of interest for some at-risk groups such as flexible flat foot morphology, subjects with high navicular drop, or overpronators.
In other words, we do not know if women land with less knee flexion and more knee valgus because of their larger Q-angles, increased navicular drop and decreased quadriceps/ hamstring strength ratios--or if differences in female movement patterns are primarily due to other factors.
We used regression techniques to determine if anthropometric factors (BMI, navicular drop, Q-angle) and lower-extremity muscle strength contributed to observed differences in landing movements.
Subject anthropometrics and postural alignment were obtained, including height, weight, BMI, navicular drop and Q-angle.
