There are few places we will accept a cross over gait as safe and normal, this is one of them.
Anyone want to place a bet this person does not have a rigid pes planus ? We are happy to take your money if you bet against this one. (hint: a rigid pes planus, is RIGID, it will not form an arch like this, even from upward pressure, in most people who have it).
A rigid pes planus can result from a long standing (years) insufficient tibialis posterior or complete tear of one (again, moon’s ago) resulting in an inability to invert the heel and raise the arch. We saw one this week.
