Abstract

Peripheral joint manipulation is an intervention used by manual therapists for a wide array of musculoskeletal problems. There is conflicting evidence on the effect of manipulations on passive ankle dorisflexion range of motion (DFR). A treatment regimen of manipulation of the proximal tibiofibular joints and talocrural joints and traction of the talocrural joint in asymptomatic patients was not effective in increasing ankle dorisflexion range of motion. This minor thesis was written by a post-graduate student as part of the requirements of the Master of Health Science (Osteopathy) program.
