Abstract

SUMMARY: JOINT MOBILIZATIONS ARE INDICATED WHEN AN IMPAIRMENT IN JOINT CAPSULAR MOBILITY IS IDENTIFIED. THE ABILITY FOR THE CLIENT OR PATIENT TO PERFORM A SELF-MOBILIZATION OF THE ANKLE MAY HELP MAXIMIZE OUTCOMES. SELF-MOBILIZATION TECHNIQUES OF THE ANKLE CAN BE PERFORMED WITHOUT THE AID OF A CLINICIAN OR STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING PROFESSIONAL.
