Can I see if I have this right, please? :-)
The heels become underslung b/c the other structures – most notably the bars - are either weakened or not there? Allowing them to roll over (curve or collapse) would weaken them. What other way might this happen? And if a they were being were removed or over trimmed regularly, it sounds like this might also contribute to underslung heels. I’m guessing a poor digital cushion and lateral cartilage would as well?
If you had to reduce the bar to a level of support for the heels, presumably the footing would be really important for recovery. IOW, if the bars had to be taken well below the heel, then ideally a footing that would get up in there and support the lowered bars is what you would want?
Am I close?
Thanks very much
