The purpose of this study was to investigate the relation of plantar arch configuration with the Rohrer index and range of motion (ROM). 40 healthy female volunteers aged between 15-26 years (17,44+1.83) were tasted. Plantar arch of every subject was evaluated by photographic method and Planimteric and Chippaux indices were calculated. In all subjects, joint ROM were measured using the Cybex 350 dynamometer. The study concluded that plantar arch configurations have good correlation with Planimetric and chippaux indicis (p<0.05). But, there wasn't any relationship between plantar arch configuration and Rom (p>0.05).
