Stabilise Wonky Ankles in just 1 Treatment

Nov 18, 2019
 

Talar Mobilisation Technique

Objectives:

  • Assess RoM of Talus within the ankle mortise
  • Release connective tissue restrictions affecting the ankle joint
  • Stimulate synovial fluid production within the ankle joint
  • Stimulate afferent inputs to the CNS for elevating proprioceptive functions

Set up:        

  • Patient position - seated with heel resting on the treatment table
  • Practitioner position - distal to the patient's leg
  • Medial thumb - on the medial Talar neck
  • Lateral thumb - on the lateral Talar neck
  • Both thumbs should be adjacent to each other
  • Surface Anatomy Tips - confirm contact is on the Talus and not the Tibia

Action:

  • Load the Talus to the end passive limit in the horizontal plane
  • Force Application - 3-5 kgs (but must be tolerable by patient)
  • Direction of Mobilisation - postero > lateral rotations at 1.5 seconds per rotation
  • Repetitions - 6 rotations (to take at least 8-9 seconds) 
  • ...

Differentiate Cuboid Conditions in less than 15 seconds

Nov 04, 2019
 

The Cuboid Assessment Test

The Cuboid Assessment Test effectively helps you determine if the Cuboid is displaced resulting in the loss of relationship between the Cuboid and the 4th & 5th Metatarsal bases. The steps to perform the Cuboid Assessment Test are:

  1. Position your client in a relaxed supine position with the foot resting on the examination chair or table.
  2. Stabilise the rearfoot (Ankle & Subtalar Joints) in a neutral midrange position with your medial hand.
  3. Apply a gentle dorsiflexion force (0.5 -1 kgs) to the plantar aspect of the 5th Metatarsal Head
  4. Ensure the dorsiflexion is isolated at the Cuboid:5th Metatarsal articulation and is not including pronation at the MTJ.

Interpreting Test Results

  • If the articular surfaces are congruent (Cuboid is in a functional position) the 5th Metatarsal Head will dorsiflex easily from its resting position.
  • If the articular surfaces are NOT congruent (Cuboid is in a dysfunctional or displaced position) the 5th Metatarsal Head...
