: :Hi PJ, Anyway,yes you probably had most of that stuff your whole life
: The AP lateral means the angle the film was taken in. the talocalcaneal angle is the joint between your talus and calcaneous. Its part of the subtalar joint.Hind foot varus involves inversion of the calcaneus when the subtalar joint is in neutral position. This may be why your foot is arching soo much. Either from Plantar Fascitis or from whats called pes cavus "hollow Foot" it originally begins as neurological deformity or muscular imbalance, if not addressed, it will turn into a bone problem where the bones actually shift to accomodate the earlier problem. Do you have caluses built up beneanth your toe joints? i'm available for another month to help answer questions you may have. I'm a physiotherapist from CA on vacation in Maine for a month. Email me if you want. Good Luck
