The Ankle CAR (controlled articular rotation):

  1. Begin in a seated position on the floor or in a chair
  2. Take the same side arm (ipsilateral) underneath the leg and place the opposite arm/hand (contralateral) over to hold the tibia from rotating
  3. Slowly move the ankle into plantar flexion
  4. Then move the foot away from the midline of the body for eversion
  5. Continue into dorsiflexion reaching the backside of the foot towards the shin
  6. Finally ending with Inversion moving the foot towards the midline
  • Avoid moving the tibia when rotating
  • Always express current end ranges
  • Repeat again or in the opposite direction if desired
