The immediate effects of myofascial compression techniques (MCT) on foot & ankle mobility and gait parameters during walking: A descriptive pilot study

Emily Splichal (2012)

Goal: Although many therapists and athletic trainers apply myofascial techniques to manipulate, mobilize and rehabilitate joints and muscles of the foot and ankle, little has been done to investigate any qualitative and quantitative effects of such techniques on foot and ankle mobility and walking gait parameters. This pilot study describes the immediate effects of myofascial compression technique (MCT) on foot and ankle mobility and stride length during walking in order to analyze the benefits, if any, to prospective athletes or patients undergoing this therapeutic modality.
