The Angle of the Heel

Overview

    • Look For

    • The angle of the heel posteriorly - neutral, inverted (varus), everted (valgus)
    • Significance

    • An inverted ankle is generally associated with pes cavus (cavovarus) and an everted heel is generally associated with pes planus (planovalgus), however abnormal heel angle can also be a physiological variant.
