mms signal not effective

Symmetrical rotation - Ascending pattern not present
Asymmetrical rotation - Ascending pattern is present

  • Repeat the LRT, testing for the effectiveness of the 3.5mms signal on each of the 3 Descending Patterns.
  1. Note - the 3.5mms signal will not alter any descending pattern.  This test only checks to see if the 3.5mms signal is compatible/or not with each of the descending patterns.
  • Record your findings under the Column No Insole and appropriate Row
  • Determine the Location(s) of the Distortion Pattern
  • ​Determine the Strength of Signal necessary in the proprioceptive insole to correct/effectively treat the Distortion Pattern
  • Repeat the LRT for each of the 3 Descending Patterns (See chart below). 
  • Record your findings under the Column No Insole and the appropriate Row

Leg Rotation Test - Used to:

I.  Leg Rotation Test to determine location(s) of Distortion Pattern

mms signal effective

 II.  Leg Rotation Test to determine strength of signal required in insole to effective treat the distortion pattern

Pure Distortion Pattern

  • Only one Distortion Pattern is present
  • Easier to Treat

Mixed Distortion Pattern

  • Two or more Distortion Patterns are present
  • More difficult to treat

Rule of Thumb

  • Use the lowest signal strength (mm thickness) that clears (tests negative) for as many present patterns as possible
  • Patient supine on the table
  • Testing effectiveness of 3.5mms signal on Ascending Distortion Pattern
  • Place 3.5mms wedge or insole on patients stomach
  • Instruct patient to close their eyes and open their mouth
  • Rotate feet inward
  • Symmetrical rotation - 3.5mms signal is effective for correcting Ascending Distortion Pattern
  • Asymmetrical rotation - 3.5mms signal is not effective for correcting Ascending Distortion Pattern
  • Recording finding (using the chart above under Column 3.5mms, Row Asc/Ey Cl M Op)

Leg Rotation Test (LRT) for Ascending Distortion Pattern

  • Patient supine on the table
  • Instruct patient to close their eyes and open their mouth
  • Rotate feet inward
  • Symmetrical rotation - Ascending pattern not present
  • Asymmetrical rotation - Ascending pattern is present
  • Record Finding (using the chart below, under Column No Insole, Row Asc/Ey Cl M Op)
