This article presents a series of case reports to describe the technique of ankle joint manipulation and its effects on common problems of the foot and ankle. The relationship between motion and pain is described, as are the effects of muscular inhibition on the presence of joint restriction and their association with pain in various joints remote to the ankle joint.
