Measurements of maximum ankle dorsiflexion (MAD) are frequently performed in clinical practice, yet no single technique has gained universal acceptance. The purpose of this study was to determine whether a significant difference exists in passive MAD measurement with the subtalar joint in a neutral vs a pronated position. The 18 healthy females who(More)
Although passive stretching is widely used, the parameters of stretching necessary to achieve a lasting length have not been determined. This study investigated the lasting effects of one bout of two 15-second passive stretches on ankle dorsiflexion range of motion. Conducting this study was important because, while it focused on a sufficient minimum(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to describe and compare ankle dorsiflexion range of motion (ADROM) measurements obtained using the heel, fifth metatarsal, and plantar surface of foot as distal surface landmarks while the ankle was dorsiflexed under three conditions. The conditions were: 1) passive ankle dorsiflexion with force adequate to encounter(More)
