Abstract

Cuboid syndrome has many different forms of onset, as it can stand alone as a pathology or be coupled with another injury. This variability in onset makes it crucial to understand when dealing with many forms of foot and ankle rehabilitation. Because of the position in the foot, many different forces act upon the cuboid and the surrounding structures, making an understanding of the necessary biomechanics crucial to effectively rehabilitating, and further preventing reinjury to, this area of the foot. This case study investigates the various aspects of two different injuries, both involving cuboid syndrome. This case study examines the onset, treatment, and overall biomechanics that lead to the development of the syndrome, as well as the associated rehabilitation.
