  19. 19. Treated Chondral Defect MC 03-27-2001
  20. 20. ANKLE SURGERY SUMMARY • Treat the lesion • Treat it early with minimal tissue disruption • Treat instability if chronic • Rehabilitate the ankle thoroughly
  21. 21. ANKLE REHABILITATION GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS • Protection in all phases • Appropriate joint mechanics and gait • Proprioceptive and functional training • Goal is to restore and improve patients function

  23. 23. ANKLE: POST-INJURY & POST-OPERATIVE PROTECTION AIR CAST walker boot AIR CAST splint ASO Ankle stabilizer
  24. 24. ANKLE: POST-OPERATIVE REHAB bi-lateral leg biking feet on ball bridges
  25. 25. ANKLE: EARLY REHAB soft tissue mobilization (edema control) soft tissue mobilization
  26. 26. ANKLE: MID REHAB fibular glide talo-crual glides
  27. 27. ANKLE: MID REHAB ankle PNF monster walk
  28. 28. ANKLE: MID REHAB single leg bridging proprioceptive training
  29. 29. ANKLE: LATE REHAB Trampoline jog proprioceptive challenge
