Video 1 – Post-foot Physical Therapy Scratch Collapse Test at the Tarsal Tunnel and Foot Physical Therapy Exercises.   This patient presented with a three- to four-year history of severe bilateral foot pain, worse on the left compared to the right side. This examination took place two months following foot physical therapy, which focused primarily on the left foot. Pre-therapy, the scratch collapse test was positive bilaterally at the tarsal tunnel. Post-therapy, the scratch collapse test was negative on the left, however was positive on the right. Further into the video, the patient demonstrated several foot therapy exercises to strengthen intrinsic foot muscles and improve foot position. This resulted in the reduction of foot pain. These exercises included flexion of toes and soles of feet, foot balance, standing heel raises, and foot flexion against resistance.
