Subtalar Joint Neutral

     I use subtalar joint neutral position daily as part of my practice. The video is a nice way of finding it when the patient stands. For some many injuries, this simple test will define treatment success or failure. You typically want to place the patient closer to this position in your treatment regimens. 
     The subtalar joint neutral is a point where there is equal stresses both on the inside of the ankle and outside of the ankle. If you are away from this position, one side of the joint is being compressed and one side stretched. Both of these positions can cause injury.
