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.
Do you tend to see a lot of ankle sprains in the clinic? In the manual therapy video below, NAIOMT faculty member Stacy Soappman discusses sprains and demonstrates one way to treat the subtalar joint.
In the manual therapy video below, NAIOMT faculty member Stacy Soappman discusses a patient she saw in the clinic who had posterior ankle pain when running, and how she approached treatment.
As PTs, and despite time constraints, we must always listen carefully to our patients, do our due diligence with testing and clinically reason through our patients' problems to find solutions that will work for them. In the manual therapy video below, NAIOMT faculty member and practicing clinician discusses how she used a sacro-iliac belt to help a hiker with complaints of knee pain.
We'll admit. The World Cup has us diving into the lower extremity. With all the fancy footwork--and collisions--happening, we can't help but see each play through a physical therapist's lens. So in the spirit of the World Cup, we cover the subtalar joint--examination and assessment of glide in eversion and abduction in the video below.
Do you treat runners? Or people who want to be runners? In the manual therapy video below, NAIOMT faculty Stacy Soappman discusses a common ankle problem that can lead to pain in the foot, ankle, or knee, and one way to assess and treat.
In the manual therapy video below, NAIOMT faculty member Stacy Soappman addresses about one way to treat the talocrural joint following a plantar flexion/inversion ankle sprain.
Ever have friends and family asking you to weigh in on various aches and pains they're experiencing? It does tend to happen when you're in our profession. :) Even from PT to PT. :) And now that we're into cycling season, the most common question I've been asked after classes is:
As more and more runners pick up their training volume for upcoming races, we inevitably see more running injuries in the clinic. In the video below, NAIOMT faculty Bill Temes addresses foot pathology in the distance runner at an Advanced Lower Quadrant Integration course in New York City.
In the manual therapy video below, NAIOMT's Bill Temes demonstrates a thorough assessment and treatment of the talocrural joint complex.
