Met Primus Equinus

Whitney CMO Met Primus Equinus

Making a first metatarsal head cut-out and deep off-loading dell.

Orthotic modification for a metatarsus primus equinus deformity is similar to that described for a functional hallux limitus deformity by making a first metatarsal head cut-out and deep off-loading dell.

The difference lies in the fact that the cut-out here is designed to accommodate the structurally declinated metatarsal.
