Lateral Tibial Glide Assessment for Ankle Mobility and Knee Stability


Ankle mobility is important. You know what else is important? Having easy and reproducible ways to measure it that do not involve palpation or accessory motion testing.



I learned this quick and easy assessment for lateral tibial glide from my colleague and good friend, Chris Johnson of ZerenPT.com. Yes, he's the guy that does all those marching videos.

When you should use this assessment

  • any time the patient has a loss of ankle mobility
  • when single limb squat or other SL movements have genu valgus or loss of stability
  • when there is a loss of tibial IR
  • as part of a general lower quarter screen for regional interdependence
  • if your patient has an ankle and tibia

This video is part of an upcoming long awaited Eval, Reset, and Stabilize DVD/Streaming Product that I am working on. It will show you quick and easy assessments and resets for each area of the body along with rationale on why the directional preference works for that area. I plan on having it ready by September! I will be assisting Chris in System of a Run in Vancouver at the end of September! Hope to see you there!
