Good morning Netters:

Thanks for your tolerance and suggestions with regards to my pace of
scaling the computer-literacy learning curve. (I apologize for
that most unsuccessful attempt of posting a summary.) Most of all
thank you for the replies that you sent concerning my request for
footwear and injuries; they have been most helpful.

1. One place to start is to look at the biomechanics of the
foot when a tarsal coalition is present. In this situation most
of the subtalar movement has been elinminated and the other
torque forces and moments about the foot can be studied.
