A study of incidence of squatting facets


Author(s): Mr. Devesh Kumar Sharma, Dr. Rati Tandon and Dr. Prabhjot Kaur Chhabra

Abstract: Habitual squatting has long been recognized to alter the skeletal morphology of the lower limb. Squatting is a resting postural complex that involves hyperflexion at the hip and knee and hyperdorsiflexion at the ankle and subtalar joints. During locomotion, the foot is rarely dorsiflexed sufficiently to bring the anterior border of the inferior extremity of the tibia into contact with the dorsum of the neck of the talus. Thus modifications of the neck of the talus and the distal tibia indicating their habitual contact have been taken as evidence of the extreme dorsiflexion of the ankle that occurs in squatting.
