Diabetic neuropathies progress from distal to proximal, the lumbricals are the first muscles to be affected by neuropathy. In an intrinsic minus foot the longest motor nerves are those that activate the intrinsic muscles of the foot (lumbricals) are affected. The characteristics of the intrinsic minus foot that can be discerned on simple physical examination are described below.

 
Some physical signs of this foot type include:
  • Hammer toes
  • Prominent plantar metatarsal heads
  • Pes Cavus foot type
  • Distal migration of the plantar fat pad
 
This type of foot type may need special attention by a chiropodist as it could lead to further deformities, increased pressure points, hyperkeratosis or even ulceration. Thus, if you or a loved one has a similar foot type it is important to seek advice or treatment from a Chiropodist.
