Ankle and Foot Clinical Examination - Clinical Skills - Dr Gill

When it comes to joints of the body, the ankle is one of the joints most commonly injured. This is vitally important to be able to effectively examine a patient who is complaining of pain in the ankle and foot.

In this video we will perform a demonstration of the ankle and foot examination.

Examination of the foot, and the ankle joint, follows the standard orthopaedic approach of look, feel, move.

There is a connected video to the foot and ankle examination, on the causes of carpal tunnel syndrome - here



Please note that there is no ABSOLUTE way to perform a clinical examination. Different institutions and even clinicians will have differing degrees of variations - the aim is the effectively identify medically relevant signs.

However during OSCE assessments. Different medical schools, nursing colleges, and other health professional courses will have their own preferred approach to a clinical assessment - you should concentrate on THEIR marks schemes for your assessments.

The examination demonstrated here is derived from Macleod's Clinical Examination - a recognized standard textbook for clinical skills.
