Dosi Doe

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
(the following is said with a proper British accent. One that is upscale and superior...not guttersnipe.)

When we talk about Dorsi-flexion (not to be confused with the exhaustingly and mentally draining popular American folk dance The Dosi-Doe) we are referring to the Dorsal Talonavicular ligament which roughly connects the bottom of the shin bone to the top of the foot. When we contract this tendon, or dorsi-flex, we are, in essence, pulling the top of the foot upwards....However, I must clarify somewhat as I do not want the Dorsal Cuboidnavicular, Cuneonavicular, Intercuneiform, Tarsometatarsal or Calcaneocuboid 1 to be left out of the equasion. They are all Dorsal ligaments and act in concert with the aforementioned Talonavicular.

I say "Huzzah" to all the dorsal ligaments of the feet.!

So, Please, please when mentioning to your fellow co-patriots about this amazingly popular phenomenon, please dont forget the "r" in Dorsi. Otherwise you will confuse and alienate the "quaint" country folk you Americans find so warming.

Dorsi is where its at ;-)

Damn, I love this! Since I'm the JargonKing, I'm going to get all over this. I used to just tell my students to pick up the big toe, this is WAY better
