21. Mobilising & Manipulation Ankle, Foot & Toe Joints

This collection of videos demonstrate a large range of mobilising and manipulation techniques applied to the ankle and foot joints. Good handling and use of the therapists body posture, body movements and legs are very important to help control the ''solid' foot in order carry out these techniques well. These techniques need repeated rehearsal to ensure the techniques can be applied in clinical practice with confidence and control. All of these techniques work extremely well as mobilising and manipulation techniques. There are alot of other techniques not shown here simply because of those not shown, they are much less consistent in terms of working and getting good results. Accurate palpation of boney surface landmarks are imperative and therapists must remember the anatomy and type of movement that occurs in each of these joints to ensure positive mobilising and accurate and effective manipulations.
