Etiology-related Questions

Posted by adam p on 10/06/01 at 01:31 (062356)

Does pf tend to develope first in the foot opposite a
sprained ankle? In the dominant foot?

Are most people who are right-handed right-footed?

Thanks in advance.

Adam P, I think more people are right handed than left, but the proportion for people who answered the survey indicates it's about 50-50. But I suppose any asymmetrical walking could cause it.

My last post wasn't very clear: the number of people who indicated it's worse in their right foot was about equal to those who indicated left foot.

People who are right handed or left handed base that predilection primarily on fine motor skills. Functions such as writing, sculpting are generally done with the dominant hand. The issue of fine motor skills rarely arises in the foot.
