Top 100 Biomechanical Guidelines #40: Root Balancing possibly damaging with Everted Negative Cast (Forefoot Varus type)

These are Forefoot Varus/Supinatus casts which stand in an Everted Position. When you use Root Balancing Techniques to fully correct, you may produce pathological (harmful) blocking of normal first ray plantarflexion with SAGITTAL PLANE BLOCKADE. You may also produce long axis of the midtarsal joint supination (at a time with the midtarsal joints should be fully pronated for stability). So, whereas Forefoot Valgus support with Root Balancing is sacred territory to fully correct, Forefoot Varus support with Root Balancing is filled with land mines and booby traps. More to come.
