This is an intensive 2 day, COP approved, course in Ankle Joint Complex (AJC) Mobilisation skills, based around Maitland Peripheral Joint Mobilisation techniques. These techniques equip you to address a number of ankle joint issues, where stiffness in the joint and surrounding tissue, is inhibiting movement or recovery into performance from injury or contributing, for example, to knee hyperextension / sinus tarsi issues.
In addition we look at how to use joints to bias particular tissues to undertake longitudinal soft tissue mobilisation to them.
Selected content/learning outcomes:
Treatment Directed Tests and functional tests – to assess range and quality of motion in all planes of the AJC.
Practically explore the AJC and the wonderful way this joint works.
Determine in which plane restriction of the tissues exists and how it contributes to dysfunction of the AJC.
Rehabilitate Injured Ankles – the use of simple joint movements to aid in pain reduction of the acute ankle injury.
Restore ROM and QOM to chronic ankle injuries and improve quality of gait.
Aquire eighteen mobilisation techniques to address the talocrural joint, subtalar joint and the superior and inferior fibular head joint Including cephalic and caudad glides.
Each technique learnt equips you to restore the various accessory glides that should exist between the articular surfaces which can also improve muscle, ligament and tendon function.
A way to add further income streams to your practice.
It comes with Pre-reading PDF, manual, and videos of the techniques for post course use, extended scope practice for COP members.
Suitable for: Private and NHS practitioners, Podiatrists, Physiotherapists, Osteopaths, Chiropractors, Orthotists, Prosthetists and Sports Therapists.
