BACKGROUND The associations between toe grip strength (TGS) and foot structure are not well known, although foot structure is inferred to affect TGS. This study investigated the associations between TGS and hallux valgus angle (HVA), toe curl ability, and foot arch height (FAH). METHODS This study analysed 227, 20 to 79-year-old, community-dwelling(More)
