Hubscher’s maneuver and Fhl

Dear Members, 2 articles ( http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16915976 , http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24703511 ) shows that a positive Hubscher test is not a good indicator of limited 1st MPJ dorsiflexion during dynamic motion and implicit of functional hallux limitus. According to Dananberg ( http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3814239 ) the” restriction of first metatarsophalangeal joint motion may vary in length and be less than 100 msec in duration” and “Fhl can occur at almost any point after contact in the stance phase” It could be possible for the metatarsophalangeal joint to be blocked for a short time after forefoot contact but at the end of the stance phase to exhibit the normal range of dorsiflexion for propulsion ?:hammer: Sincerely, Daniel
