Flashcards in 04 Ankle Manual Therapy Deck (30):
1

mobs for the talocrural joint

- traction
- anterior glide
- posterior glide
- malleolar glides

2

traction used for

decreased joint play

3

2 methods for traction

- hands distal to malleoli, elbow blocking knee traction
- combining traction with physiological mob

4

traction: without physiological mob

- sitting inside the leg
- traction force to talocrural joint

5

traction: with physiological mob

- fourth fingers of either hand on dorsum of foot
- lace fingers
- traction and DF force

6

anterior glides used for

decreased PF

7

anterior glides: tissues

anterior capsule

8

traction: tissue

capsule

9

anterior glide: position

- one hand over tibia, one under heel
- pull up on heel

10

posterior glide used for

decreased DF

11

posterior glide: tissue

posterior capsule

12

posterior glide: position

- give traction force on calcaneus, pulling up
- opposite hand on dorsum of foot pulling down

13

malleolar glides are used for

- decreased joint play
- decreased PF
- decreased DF

14

malleolar glides: position

- stabilize one, mobilize the other

15

malleolar glides: tissue

- distal tib/fib
- joint capsule

16

Why might you need to use malleolar glides?

- chronic ankle sprains
- may have anterior displaced lateral malleolus
- do posterior glides

17

What type of joint is the STJ?

saddle

18

Why would you use traction?

decreased joint play

19

Why would you use eversion (valgus tilt)?

- decreased eversion
- decreased dorsiflexion

20

Why would you use inversion (varus tilt)?

- decreased inversion
- decreased plantarflexion

21

What are the midtarsal joint mobs?

- dorsal glide
- plantar glide

22

What are midtarsal joint mobs used for?

decreased joint play

23

intermetatarsal joint mobs

- dorsal glide
- plantar glide
- splaying

24

What are the intermetatarsal joint mobs for?

decreased joint play

25

What mobs are used for MTP, PIP, DIP joints?

- traction
- dorsal glides
- plantar glides
- medial glides
- lateral glides

26

toes: clinical indications
traction

27

toes: clinical indications and tissues implicated
dorsal glides

- decreased extension

28

toes: clinical indications and tissues implicated

29

toes: clinical indications and tissues implicated
medial glides

- decreased joint play
- medial capsule and ligaments

30

toes: clinical indications and tissues implicated
lateral glides

- decreased joint play
- lateral capsule and ligaments
