This study was carried out to evaluate the co-relation between mandibular rotations in patients with a history of mid back pain, lower back pain and knee pain. Data was obtained from 48 subjects in the form of face photographs, photograph of the position of the feet after the Smylist® three jump test and a detailed Smylist® history form. The face photographs were evaluated and the mandibular rotations were determined and diagnosis carried out based on the Smylist® concept. This was then cross checked with the foot position photographs and the mandibular rotations confirmed. This study confirms that the representative foot positions discrepancy is seen in all mandibular rotation cases as postulated by the Smylist® concept. All 48 cases demonstrated mandibular rotation of varying severities and all of them reported varying degrees of one or more of the three categories of pain. The study definitely demonstrates the co-relation between mandibular rotation and foot position discrepancy which leads on to posture compensations of various forms leading to mid back, low back and knee pain.
