How To Conquer The Accessory Navicular Bone (1735 words)
It is important to examine the posterior tibial tendon and measure the extent of pain to this tendon proximal to the navicular bone.
Perhaps the most common of the extra bones in the foot, the accessory navicular bone is estimated to be present in 7 to 19 percent of the population.
Zadek and Gold maintained that the bone persisted as a distinct, separate bone in 2 percent of the population.
