By Dr.A.Sridhar

Tibiofemoral Distraction, Long-Axis Traction
Indications • Testing; initial treatment; pain control; general mobility

Tibiofemoral Distraction, Long-Axis Traction

Tibiofemoral Posterior Glide
Indications • Testing; to increase flexion

Tibiofemoral Posterior Glide: Alternate Positions and Progression

Tibiofemoral Anterior Glide
Indication • To increase extension

Patellofemoral Joint, Distal Glide
Indication • To increase patellar mobility for knee flexion

Patellofemoral Medial-Lateral Glide
Indication • To increase patellar mobility

Proximal Tibiofibular Articulation: Anterior (Ventral) Glide
Indications • To increase movement of the fibular head; to reposition a posteriorly positioned head

Distal Tibiofibular Articulation: Anterior (Ventral) or Posterior (Dorsal) Glide

Indication • To increase mobility of the mortise when it is restricting ankle dorsiflexion

Talocrural Distraction
Indications • Testing; initial treatment; pain control; general mobility

Talocrural Dorsal (Posterior) Glide
Indication • To increase dorsiflexion.

Talocrural Ventral (Anterior) Glide
Indication • To increase plantarflexion.

Subtalar Distraction
Indications • initial treatment; pain control; general mobility for inversion/eversion.
