Standing, one pronated and the other foot supinated, suggests the presence of a mixed (non-smooth) postural distorsional pattern - e.g., a patient having both a PreClincial Clubfoot Deformity (or Rothbarts Foot) and a malocclusion:

Case 1 - Photo below was taken from a patient diagnosed as having both a malocclusion and PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity.

  • Note - the left foot is supinated, the right foot is pronated (weight predominantly on heels)
