Anatomic function

Unlike the TN joint, which is responsible for complex hindfoot circumduction, the CC joint is relatively unimportant for normal function. In fact, if fused at normal length, no loss of motion in the rest of the hindfoot occurs.
However, lateral column length is very important to maintain the shape and function of the foot. Therefore, cuboid length must be maintained.
