The participant performed the AT in supine position with her hip and knee joints fully extended and ankles dorsiflexed at 90[degrees] (Fig.
To perform SOKCE, all participants were positioned in such a manner that their lower extremity angles 50[degrees] with their trunk as they sit in a backed chair and their arms crossed in front of the chest and their both ankles dorsiflexed. The participants were instructed to perform the exercises with their knee extended and their hip in 15[degrees] of adduction.
The ankle joint was dorsiflexed at 5[degrees]/s starting from 30[degrees] of plantar flexion, until the passive resistive torque corresponding to 20% of the pre-measured maximal voluntary plantar flexion torque was reached.
There are three specialized radiographic views to bring the hamate into better view: the carpal tunnel view; the supinated oblique view with the wrist dorsiflexed; and the lateral view projected through the first web space with the thumb abducted.
Flexibility test--Lower limb flexibility was assessed by the chair sit and reach test, where the participants were first seated on a chair in such a way that they could come to the front edge of the seat while keeping their legs extended with ankle dorsiflexed. Second, they reached, with their hands for the toes of their extended legs and the examiner used a ruler (centimeters) to measure the distance between the participants' finger and the tips of the toes.

While the participant was resting in a supine position on the examination table, the left knee was placed in extension and the ankle dorsiflexed. Then a standard cloth tape measure was used to measure from the bottom of the foot to the level equivalent at the top of the head (in a straight horizontal line) to determine the participant's height.
A percutaneous Achilles tenotomy (PAT) was performed under local anesthesia in the office if the foot could not be dorsiflexed at least 15[degrees] at the time of removal of the second-to-last cast.
Maintenance Phase: when the final cast is removed, the infant is placed in a brace that maintains the foot in its corrected position (abducted and dorsiflexed).
If the patient complains of pain while walking down stairs, suspect injury to the posterior (plantar flexed) ankle; pain while walking up stairs more likely indicates anterior (dorsiflexed) pathology.
The ankle joint was dorsiflexed to 60 degrees, and knee joint was fixed in straight position.
The patient lies on the affected side while the operator fixes the dorsiflexed foot against his inner thigh.
