Functional Mobilization for Ankle Pain in Deep Squat

The lateral tibial glide is a great mobilization that restores ankle dorsiflexion. It often improves "knee stability" as well because it enables the tibia to glide efficiently over the talus instead of moving medially when restricted in lateral glide. This is a progression in full deep squat - the patient is a pediatric PT as well as a catcher and needs to have full mobility when shifting around in a squat position.

Remember, to even get to pain free full squat, she needed to restore sidegliding in standing to the right, or ability of the lumbar spine/hip to accept load. Only after that mobilization was she able to progress to the lateral tibial glide in deep squat.
