Hypomobility Syndrome – Foot and Ankle

Hypomobility Syndrome – Foot and Ankle

Description:

The foot and ankle become stiff in all directions of motion both with glides as well as normal physiological motions.  This may be due to chronic degenerative changes (osteoarthritis), prior trauma, or immobilization (after surgery or fracture).

Treatment:

  • Postural and movement cues to decrease compensations for the stiff ankle.  This will prevent further degenerative changes and pain in related joints (hip or knee).
  • Attempt to improve mobility of the foot and ankle – soft tissue, joint, stretching.
  • Improve strength and control of motion that has been gained.
