Posterior impingement sign

Purpose: To assess for labral impingement posteriorly. Test Position: Supine (in Thomas Test position). Performing the Test: With the patient in the Thomas test position, place the affected limb in extension, lateral rotation, Posterior Ankle Impingement is a condition where an individual experiences pain at the back of the ankle, due to compression of the bone or soft tissue structures during activities that involve maximal ankle plantarflexion motion.

Aug 04, 2012 Physical exam test to assess for shoulder impingement or rotator cuff pathology. Sep 30, 2015  Posterior impingement: Hypertrophy or tear of the posterior inferior TFL, transverse TFL, tibial slip, or pathologic labrum on the posterior ankle joint can lead to posterior ankle impingement, which may pinch on Posterior ankle impingement (PAI) syndrome is one of the impingement syndromes involving the ankle.

It is classically described in ballet dancers. Clinical presentation Patients usually present with sharp pain at the back of the ankle upon plan Posterior Impingement Sign: Meister et al. investigated the ability to detect articularsided rotator cuff tears and posterior labral lesions. They reported a sensitivity and specificity of 75. 5 and 85 respectively, meaning a negative test is extremely accurate in ruling out posterior rotator cuff tears. Posterior impingement signs and Jobes relocation test, with specific resolution of posterior GH joint pain, are recommended (Meister 2004).

Increased external rotation and decreased internal rotation are common in patients with internal impingement ( Morrison 2000, Myers 2006, Tyler 2010, Tyler 2000 ). Posterior internal impingement (PII) of the glenohumeral joint is a common cause of shoulder complex pain in the overhead athlete.

This impingement is very different from standard outlet impingement seen in shoulder patients. Posterior ankle impingement can be a result of a number of entities including soft tissue impingement, a prominent bony process or unfused ossicles.

Patients typically relate pain with forced or repeated plantarfleixon at the ankle, which can cause acute and chronic impingementsynovitis or bony contusions as well as restricted motion in the Signs and symptoms of posterior ankle impingement. Patients with posterior ankle impingement typically experience pain during activities requiring maximal plantarflexion of the ankle or after these activities with rest (especially at At their 6month followup examinations, the patients' Harris hip scores had recovered from 64 to 100 (Case I) and from 50 to 98 (Case II), and the anterior and posterior impingement signs were negative in both cases.
