ANKLE PLANTAR FLEXION


 (Normal and Good) for Gastrocnemius and Soleus.                               

Standing on limb to be tested, knee straight.

For Normal grade, patient raises heel from floor through range of motion of plantar flexion.

Patient should complete motion four or five times in good form and without apparent fatigue.

The Tibialis posterior and the peroneus longus and brevis muscles must be normal or good to stabilize the forefoot and provide counter pressure against the floor.

A good grade is given if patient can complete full range of motion two or three times and then has difficulty in completing the movement.
