The clinical evaluation specific to the forefoot exam is to try to reproduce neuroma symptoms. Mulder’s technique is used to elicit a palpable click and pain as the forefoot is squeezed with both hands. Following a review of pertinent anatomy by Dr. Wilde, Jamie demonstrates the technique to evaluate the plantar plates of the forefoot. She also demonstrates the technique to image and assess the interspaces. The metatarsophalangeal joint is assessed for any effusions, synovitis, osteophytes, or ganglion cysts.
