What is the range of active inversion and eversion? 25 degrees of total range, 20 degrees of inversion and 5 degrees of eversion
Where should the fulcrum of the goniometer be placed to measure plantarflexion or dorsiflexion centered on the lateral malleoulus
Where should the fulcrum of the goniometer be placed to measure inversion or eversion? over the talocrural joint line, centered between the malleoli
What ligament does the anterior drawer test? ATF
What ligament does the talar tilt test ? CF ligament with inversion stress or deltoid ligament with eversion stress
What does a positive kleiger's test implicate? Medial pain is indicative of trauma to the deltoid ligament. Pain the area of the anterolateral ankle should be considered syndesmosis pathology unless determined otherwise
What does a positive squeeze test implicate? gross fracture or stress fracture of the fibula when pain is described along the fibluar shaft. syndesmosis sprain when pain is described at the distal tibiofibular joint
What are the pain characteristics of an inversion ankle sprain? lateral aspect of the ankle around the area of the malleolus and sinus tarsi
What is the MOI of an inversion ankle sprain? Inversion, plantarflexion, or talar rotation in any combination
What would you find on inspection of an inversion ankle sprain? findings include swelling around the lateral joint capsule, which may spread to the dorsum of the foot and into the sinus tarsi. ecchymosis may be present around the lateral malleolus
What are the pain characteristics of a syndesmotic ankle sprain? anterior portion of the distal tibiofibular ligaments
What is the MOI of a syndesmotic ankle sprain? external rotation of the talus within the ankle mortise and/or dorsiflexion
What would you find on inspection of a syndesmotic ankle sprain? swelling possibly present over the distal tibiofibular syndesmosis
What are the pain characteristics of an eversion ankle sprain? medial border of the ankle and foot, radiating from the medial malleolus
What is the MOI of a eversion ankle sprain? eversion and/or rotation
What would you find on inspection of a eversion ankle sprain? swelling around the medial joint capsule
What are the pain characteristics of a lower leg stress fracture? along the shaft of the tibia or fibula; localized during or after exercise; may be described as a localized "ache" while at rest
What is the MOI of a lower leg stress fracture? no definitive origin of pain. the history possibly indicates a sudden increase in the duration, frequency, or intensity of exercise or a change in a playing surface or shoe wear
What would you find on inspection of a lower leg stress fracture? normally unremarkable; however, localized swelling is possible in advance stages
What does a positive bump test implicate? possible advanced stress fracture

What are the pain characteristics of an achilles tendinitis? along the length of the achilles tendon
What is the MOI of an achilles tendinitis? Overuse or secondary to acute trauma, such as a blow to the achilles tendon. improperly fitting shoe rubbing against the tendon may also activate the inflammatory response
What would you find on inspection of an achilles tendinitis? Possible visible edema along the length of the tendon; the tendon on the involved leg may appear thicker than on the opposite leg
