The Effects of Increased Prosthetic Ankle Motions on the Gait of Persons with Bilateral Transtibial Amputations

Both the subjective and objective results suggest that prosthetic foot and ankle components that allow for greater sagittal and transverse plane rotations provide substantial benefit during walking and should be considered for persons with bilateral transtibial amputations. Nonetheless, clinicians should perform individual and appropriate assessments of patients to insure that they capable of using components that may improve mobility while possibly sacrificing some degree of stability.

Plain x-rays should be obtained of both the ankle and tibia-fibula before an attempted reduction maneuver. Three views of the ankle should be obtained including anteroposterior (AP), lateral, and Mortise views. The Mortise view is obtained by aiming the x-ray beam in an AP direction while internally rotating the ankle 15 degrees. Obtaining full-length tibia-fibula x-rays are imperative to identify Maisonneuve-type injuries (transfer of energy through the interosseous membrane resulting in a proximal fibula fracture or proximal tibiofibular joint dislocation).

The Impact of Ankle Motion on Ice Hockey Performance

The Impact of Ankle Motion on Ice Hockey Performance

When I began writing an article on the physical qualities which are related to being an ultra-fast skater, I began with ankle dorsiflexion…which resulted in a deep dive…and, now, have found that the article would be too long to cover anything else. Without further ado, here’s a write-up on ankle dorsiflexion and on-ice performance.

A bootfitter can help take guesswork out of finding the right boot, but it still comes down to skiers understanding how a boot should fit, then being able to articulate to a bootfitter how a boot feels. Consider these tips from Tischendorf, then get ready to spend an hour with a bootfitter, talking about your feelings.

A sinus tract communicating with the joint is a major diagnostic criterion for periprosthetic joint infection (see first photo above). Other findings, such as joint tenderness, joint effusion or wound dehiscence, should raise clinical suspicion for periprosthetic joint infection but are not independently specific.35 Additional signs may include warmth, tenderness, erythema, edema, drainage and induration. Depending on the severity of the infection, constitutional or systemic symptoms may or may not be present.36-38

Breaking pointe: Foot and ankle injuries in dance

Ankle injuries and joint degeneration may be related to ankle bone morphology. Little data exist to characterize healthy hindfoot bone morphology. The purpose of this study was to characterize side-to-side symmetry and sex differences in ankle and hindfoot bone morphology, and to identify the primary shape factors that differentiate ankle and hindfoot bone morphology among individuals.

Tip: 40-Seconds to Instantly Thicker Hamstrings

The ankle joint has one degree of freedom, meaning it can only produce movement in one plane. Your ankle is a hinge joint whose actions in the sagittal plane are dorsiflexion (up) and plantarflexion (down).
