      False

  • 3. 
    When non-weight bearing, dorsiflexion of the talocrural joint results in the talus rolling anteriorly and sliding posteriorly on the distal leg.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 4. 
    Traction applied through the long axis of the shaft of the femur will result in distraction at the hip joint.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 5. 
    Characteristics of roll include:
    • A. 

      Joint surfaces are maximally congruent

    • B. 

      Roll results in swing of the bone

    • C. 

      Rolling is always in the opposite direction of the swing of the moving bone

    • D. 

      New points on one surface contact the same point on the opposing surface

    • E. 

      None of the above

  • 6. 
    Knee extension can be improved by gliding the tibia anteriorly on the femur using Grade 2 translatoric glide.
    • A. 

      True

  • 7. 
    Grade 3 traction will:
    • A. 

      Reduce pain

      Improve range of motion

    • D. 

      B & C

  • 8. 
    In cases of pain, muscle guarding and spasm, small amplitude, high velocity oscillaroty movements may be used to stimulate mechanoreceptors, thus inhibiting the transmission of nociceptive stimuli.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 9. 
    Ventral glide of the femur at the coxofemoral joint will help improve external rotation.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 10. 
    In a case where your client presents with restricted talocrural joint plantarflexion, you could glide the talus posteriorly in the mortise to help improve range of motion.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 11. 
    According to Kaltenborn, the protocol for joint mobilization treatment should begin with grade 2 sustained translatoric glide.
