PMID:  3395949     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
An overview of the normal and abnormal functional equilibrium of the lower extremity has been presented. The biomechanical and pathomechanical implications of activity and inactivity on this system have been discussed. Special emphasis has been placed on the effects of musculoskeletal imbalances on foot function. Evaluation and management guidelines for the restoration and rehabilitation of lower extremity functional equilibrium have been outlined. Familiarization with these concepts and techniques will enable the astute practitioner to prevent disruptions of extremity functional equilibrium and allow the individual to lead a more healthy, active lifestyle.
