Passive ankle mobility. Clinical measurement compared with radiography.

Abstract

We compared goniometric assessment of passive ankle movement with radiographic measurements in 100 normal ankles. Significant differences were recorded in both dorsiflexion and plantarflexion; clinical measurements overestimated the range of movement. For scientific documentation of tibiotalar mobility, radiographic measurements should be used.
