Palpation of the cuboid-metatarsal V joint

The base of the fifth metatarsal bone is gripped between the thumb and index of one hand. The cuboid bone (medial to the metatarsal and distal to the already identified calcaneocuboid joint line) is gripped between the thumb and index
finger of the other hand. A translation movement discloses easily the joint line between cuboid and fifth metatarsal bone.
