Hi guys,

I’m hoping you can help.

I have a severely arthritic 2 MTPJ on my left foot.

It seems to trigger extreme hip flexor tightness which has twisted my whole body, right up to my neck and jaw.

I can’t seem to get any definitive answers as to how to turn off this protective hip flexor tightness. I’m concerned if it goes on much longer I’m going to develop bone spurs throughout my body. This would destroy my life.

Is there any surgery you recommend?

Or any type of Rocker soled shoe? I’ve tried MBT’s but I think the forefoot is stiff enough and my Hipflexor hasn’t calmed down properly.

Thank you so much if you decide to answer this

How does subtalar supination/pronation affect plane deviations farther up the chain, specifically at the pelvis? I was going over some notes and found something saying that increased pronation leads to increased frontal plane motion at the pelvis during gait, and increased sup leads to increased transverse plane motion. However, in this video I was watching, the clinician states that increased sup will lead to increased frontal plane motion. Is this not a contradiction? Can both be true? Thanks
