Ankle joint & foot in regards to the functional chain


People frequently present with pain and dysfunction in the lower limb with impairments from more distal or proximal factors potentially contributing to the presentation. Assessment should adequately and objectively address these potential ‘drivers’ to ensure a holistic management approach is developed. However, it is also important to recognise that not all biomechanical ‘differences’ are relevant to the person’s presentation. That is, not all ‘deficits’ should be the target of intervention. This session will help develop your clinical reasoning skills related to the assessment and management of lower limb biomechanics to help determine when biomechanics may be relevant to your client’s presentation.

This session is also designed to help develop your confidence regarding the assessment and management of people presenting with foot and ankle pain. Whilst many people with foot and ankle pain that present to primary care make a full recovery, some go on to have long-term pain and dysfunction.

In this session, you will have demonstrated selected “special” or orthopaedic tests as well as manual handling and taping skills. You will also be asked to consider common presentations across the lifespan.




Upon completion of this webinar, attendees will be able...

  • to obtain all information regarding biomechanics relevant to the person’s presentation
  • to provide a client with a sound understanding of their biomechanics and explain the potential influence of load and biomechanics on injury

  • to implement appropriate treatment direction tests to address potential lower limb biomechanical issues
  • to gain a greater understanding and appreciation of the benefits of inter-disciplinary collaboration confidently perform palpation and selected “special”, or orthopaedic tests, for selected conditions affecting the ankle


The webinar will cover:

  • Background of ankle and foot dysfunction
  • Clinical features of common ankle and foot disorders
  • Objective examination of the foot and ankle and surrounding related areas



  • Review of the background related to ankle and foot disorders and related biomechanics
  • Review of assessment procedures for diagnosing common ankle and foot disorders


Practical including assessment/clinical tests and rehabilitation concepts:

Clinical Tests and Rehabilitation:

1. Assessment of functional tasks: e.g., gait, squatting, jumping, running, hopping and other functional tasks that are appropriate for your client’s age

2. Lower limb kinetic chain assessment – prioritisation and selection. For example:

  • Hip strength, range
  • Knee neuromuscular control
  • Foot mechanics and impact on kinetic chain (rigid/flexible forefoot varus)
  • Flexor hallucis longus/limited toe extension (capsulitis, sesamoiditis),

3. Functional outcome measures (e.g., jump for height/distance/triple hop/Y-balance)

4. Assessment of traumatic ankle injuries using a selection of palpation and “special” or orthopaedic tests

  • Knee to wall test-WB DF
  • Anterior Drawer, ATFL and Talar Tilt tests
  • Deltoid Ligament Test
  • Jack’s Test
  • Cuboid Assessment Test
  • Syndesmosis Tests
  • Balance tests
  • Strength tests


For the course "Ankle joint & foot in regards to the functional chain" you will receive 2,5 CEU of 45 minutes each.
