Forefoot varus v supinatus

There seems to have been a flurry of publications recently that involved the construct of ‘forefoot varus’ in which a superficial or poor understanding of the concept and confusing it with the construct of ‘forefoot supinatus’ is leading to some flawed conclusion. Even the peer review process of the journals concerned are not picking up on the issue. I have blogged about two of them here:

Is forefoot varus related to patellofemoral osteoarthritis?
The effect of forefoot varus on the hip and knee and the effect of the hip and knee on forefoot supinatus …

It is some thing that comes up with regularity on Podiatry Arena.

This confusion need to stop and not be perpetuated.
