The evaluation of the foot posture, with several methods (footprints, x-ray goniometry, measurements of anatomical heights, more or less objective palpations and evaluations or using motion analysis technology) has been a recurring topic in the research due to its implications in health. About foot posture we are interested in both, physiological, and altered parameters, in order to know the link with whole health or pain appearance, and diseases or deformities in the foot, lower extremity or low back. Being foot posture assessment so important in the childhood, in the sport performance, the design of foot orthoses and sport and daily shoes this special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH) focuses on the current state of knowledge on advances in foot posture, methods, evolution and interventions to analyze foot posture and their link with health or the appearance of injuries or diseases. We will accept manuscripts from different disciplines, as new research papers and reviews. Papers dealing with new approaches to assess foot posture and interventions studies are also welcome. Other manuscript types accepted include methodological papers, brief reports and commentaries. Here are some examples of topics that could be addressed in this special issue:
- Link between different methods of assessment of foot posture
- Interventions that assess foot posture
- Does pediatric flatfoot matter?
- Foot posture and sports performance
- Foot posture at risk foot
- Foot posture across the lifespan
- Foot posture and foot pain
- Foot posture and disease groups
- Biopsychological determinants associated to foot posture
- Foot posture measurements and its correlation with dynamic foot measurements
- Foot posture and medical imaging
