Changes in the dorsiflexion
range of motion (DFROM) in each condition.
Dependent variables included in the statistical analysis were: NWB ankle plantar flexion ROM (degrees of motion); NWB ankle dorsiflexion
ROM (degrees of motion); weightbearing lunge test (degrees of motion); releve endurance (number of releves performed); plantar flexion strength (Newtons); Airplane Test (number of successful trials); and Star Excursion Balance Test (percentage of limb length reach).
Six of the 15 participants had a decrease in dorsiflexion
in swing of two degrees or more  (average 3.7[degrees], range 2-7[degrees]).
 has a fixed axis of rotation for ankle dorsiflexion
At the study conclusion (i.e., 3 years after conditioning), voluntary ankle dorsiflexion
remained visible and improved.
En ocasiones el dolor llega a ser incapacitante, sobre todo con la dorsiflexion
de las falanges, que incrementan la tension de la fascia plantar.
A similar finding was reported in another study which compared goniometer to inclinometer measurements of ankle dorsiflexion
Foot drop is defined as weakness of the foot and ankle dorsiflexion
due to debility of the anterior tibialis, extensor halluces longus and extensor digitorum longus muscles.
Claw toe is distinguished from hammer toe by the combination of dorsiflexion
of the MTP joint and plantarflexion of the DIP joint in the former condition.
The aim of this study was the validation of the manual use of a commercial HHD, which is a uniaxial load cell, in the plantarflexion and dorsiflexion
ankle strength measurements quantifying the effects of HHD misplacements and unwanted foot's movements on the measurements.
Therefore, the primary aim of this preliminary study was to investigate if functional reorganization takes place after VRET in subacute stroke survivors with gait impairment, using fMRI and an ankle dorsiflexion
