The article reports on research which was conducted to find whether patients who had undergone lateral column lengthening and had symptoms of lateral pain or discomfort would have increased lateral plantar pressures when compared with matched controls without these symptoms. Researchers evaluated 10 subjects. They found that patients who have undergone lateral column lengthening and who experience lateral plantar pain have increased plantar pressure values in the lateral aspect of the midfoot.
