PRACTICAL DEMONSTRATION OF PASSIVE SEGMENTARY MOBILIZATION OF THE ANATOMICAL REGION OF:
- TRUNK (Joints of the dorsal, lumbar and sacral spine):
Flexion - extension - lateral inclination - rotation.
- ANCA (Pelvic girdle joints):
Abduction - adduction - flexion - extension - external and internal rotation.
- KNEE (femoral-tibio-patellar joint):
Flexion - extension - mobilization of the patella.
- ANKLE (Tibio-peroneal-astragalic joint):
Plantar flexion - dorsal flexion or extension
- FOOT (Joints: sub-astragalic, mid-tarsal, tarsal-metatarsal and intermetatarsal,
Flexion - extension - abduction - adduction - internal and external rotation
Practical exercise of passive segmental mobilization, performed by the teacher and repeated by the learners in succession, in supine, prone, lateral and seated positions.
