dc.description.abstract The purpose of this randomized-controlled trial is to examine the effect self-mobilizations on the ankle range of motion (ROM), dorsiflexion. Increasing dorsiflexion will decrease ankle injuries and increase functional abilities. 20 female participants without an ankle injury in the past six months will be randomly assigned to two groups. Intervention group will perform 3 sets for 30 second self mobilizations with movement three times weekly for 2 weeks. Control group will perform 3 sets of 10 ankle pumps for the same timeline. We hypothesize that three sets of anterior posterior joint mobilizations done by the mobilizations with movement technique will increase in dorsiflexion after two weeks of treatments. Dorsiflexion will be measured in milimeters with Wall to Knee Principle. Repeated measures ANOVA test will be used to determine the change over time in ROM, any group differences and group by time interaction with a p value of .10.
