In this NAIOMT technique video, I demonstrate a cuboid manipulation. It's performed by positioning your thumbs over the cuboid and providing a plantar dorsal force at a 60-degree angle. It can be helpful when an inverted ankle sprain has occurred, as the cuboid can get stuck in an externally rotated position.
In the manual therapy video below, I demonstrate a proper palpating of the UCL ligament in order to assess for tenderness, as this is a marker for return to sports when the ligament is no longer tender.
In the manual therapy video below, I demonstrate an evaluation of the scapula. This evaluation is one of the many things I teach in NAIOMT's specialty course Advanced Concepts for the Overhead Athlete. Join us for our next session on June 15-16, 2019 in Falls Church VA!
