The Effect of Manipulation on Dysfunction of the Talo-crural Joint

2014-07-23 21:09:06 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this trial was to explore the effects of chiropractic manipulation in patients with talo-crural joint dysfunction.


Ankle sprains is one of the most common problems in clinical practice, mostly due to loss of mobility. Factors affecting the mobility of the joints may be due to muscle tension, ligamentous or anatomical anomalies.

Research over the last years have reported a scarce of trials investigating chiropractic treatment of the ankle joint. Previous studies have focused on investigating ROM and proprioception. This study aimed to determine whether a single high-velocity, low-amplitude (HVLA) thrust manipulation to the talo-crural joint altered ankle function in subjects with dysfunction of the talo-crural joint.

Musculoskeletal manipulation based on the principles of OSTEOPATHIC MEDICINE developed in 1874 by Dr Andrew Taylor Still.

The properties, processes, and behavior of biological systems under the action of mechanical forces.

The planned and carefully managed manual movement of the musculoskeletal system, extremities, and spine to produce increased motion. The term is sometimes used to denote a precise sequence of movements of a joint to determine the presence of disease or to reduce a dislocation. In the case of fractures, orthopedic manipulation can produce better position and alignment of the fracture. (From Blauvelt & Nelson, A Manual of Orthopaedic Terminology, 5th ed, p264)
