FLEXION OF INTERPHALANGEAL JOINTS OF TOES

Flexion of proximal 

INTERPHALANGEAL 

Joints Of Lateral 4 Toes  Flexion Digitorum brevis              

Backlying, ankle in mid-position between plantar and dorsi-flexion.

Stabilize proximal row of phalanges of lateral 4 Toes.

Patient flexes toes.

Resistance is given beneath middle row of phalanges of lateral 4 toes for normal and good.                                

FACTORS LIMITING MOTION.                            

1.Tension of extensor muscles tendons/dorsal ligaments of toes.            

2. Contact of soft parts of phalanges.                     

FIXATION.                            

1. Stabilization of foot by invertor and evertor muscle groups.                  

2.Weight of leg and foot Synergistic action of Tibialis anterior to prevent plantar flexion of ankle.


Happy viewing.
