In chronic cases, the range of motion of the hallux may be reduced as a result of fibrosis of the flexor hallucis longus tendon, which sits between the medial and lateral talar tubercles.
In the present study, FAST included strengthening of posterior tibialis and flexor hallucis longus that may have contributed to a more inverted foot position during the swing phase, at the contact and to the loads lateral excursion at the stance phase.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of both ankles (Figs 2 and 3) showed a large accessory soleus muscle between the flexor hallucis longus muscle belly and the Achilles tendon inserting onto the posteromedial edge of the calcaneus via a thin tendinous insertion.
Because of its location between the medial and lateral talar tubercles, inflammatory changes may be seen in the flexor hallucis longus tendon in patients with os trigonum syndrome.
Anatomically designed to match the shape of the proximal phalanx, the K2 Hemi includes a slight groove in the base to accommodate the flexor hallucis longus (FHL) tendon.
The flexor hallucis longus (FHL) tendon is prone to tendinosis and tears at the knot of Henry.
A type II tear is a focal thinning of the tendon to less than the diameter of the adjacent normal flexor digitorum longus (FDL) or flexor hallucis longus (FHL) tendons.
