Description: muscle weakness primarily affects peroneus brevis muscle and the tibialis anterior, w/ relative sparing of the peroneus longus;
- results in planatar flexion of first ray, resulting in hindfoot varus thru the tripod effect;
- w/ plantar flexed first ray and mobile lateral rays, in order for the foot to remain plantigrade, the heel must roll into varus inorder to get the lateral metatarsals on the ground;
