  • Abstract : The primary purpose was to determine the relationship between foot type and medical costs associated with lower extremity MSI. An additional purpose was to describe the utilization of healthcare and costs. Participants (n=688; M=392, F=276; age 30.1 7.4 years, BMI 25.8 3.3 kg/m2) were prospectively followed for 31 months. The Foot Posture Index (FPI-6) quantified static foot posture. Medical costs, diagnostic codes, and relative value units (RVUs) associated with healthcare visits… CONTINUE READING
