Ankle Mobilisation Techniques


This is an intensive 2 day course in Ankle Joint Complex (AJC) Mobilisation skills. Based around Maitland Peripheral Joint Mobilisation techniques these skills equip you to address a number of ankle joint issues where stiffness in the joint, and surrounding tissue, inhibits movement or recovery into performance from injury.

  • Rehabilitate Injured Ankles – the use of simple joint movements to aid in pain reduction of the acute ankle injury.
  • Restore ROM and QOM to chronic ankle injuries and improve quality of gait.
  • Aquire eighteen mobilisation techniques to address the talocrural joint, subtalar joint and the superior and inferior fibular head joint including cephalic and caudad glides.

Thanks Ian. You’re knowledge, teaching skills, presentation skills are all fantastic – the course
has really helped to refine my skills.

Another excellent course from Ian with all aspects of ankle joint mobilisation covered in detail
and in easy to understand terms.

Great informal learning environment. Plenty of practical hands on, questions welcomed. Would
highly recommend to extend scope of practice.

Pace was good. Teaching style was excellent. I can now use these techniques in clinical
tomorrow. Very useful.

Excellent course with lots of practical aspects. Ian teaches it very well. Would recommend to
others to extend scope of practice.

Fantastic 2 days. Another excellent course that followed on nicely from the foot mobs. Looking
forward to the soft tissue in September!
