ABSTRACT:
Aim: To investigate about the prevalence of disability resulting from adult acquired foot flat deformity (AAFD) among middle aged population. Background: Adult acquired foot flat deformity (AAFD) which is also known as posterior tibialis tendon dysfunction (PTTD) is the condition which leads to pain due to the collapse of the longitudinal (length wise) arch of the foot. Its affects women more than non, peaking age of 55 years. The prevalence of flat foot is uncertain due to the lack of exact clinical or radiographic criteria. The foot structure problem which affects the functional activity in the adult population has been poorly studied. So the present study was undertaken about the prevalence of disability resulting from AAFD which may help to develop preventive approaches, as increased awareness serve to help the patient with earlier referral and treatment by limiting their disability. Methodology: 50 subjects who was diagnosed as AAFD was included in the study based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria. Foot function index score was calculated for the samples. Outcome Measure: Foot function index scale. Results: The total mean score is 112.75. The prevalence of disability resulting from adult acquired foot flat deformity which affects the quality of life for samples taken is 66%.
