Interesting Foot Studies – A study of 2,089 participants show that left-handed people were less likely to have foot pain or any foot disorders on the same left side foot, but were more likely to have bunions on the same side to the left hand.
Among right-handed people, there was a significant increase in odds of having a same-sided foot disorder versus opposite side foot disorder. Right handed domination resulted in an increase of 30% for Morton’s neuroma, 18% for hammer toes, 21% for lesser toe deformity and twice the odds of any foot disorder. There was a 17% decreased odds for a bunion and an 11% decreased odds for high arches.
