in this video we are going to look at our three kinematic assessment and treatment for the dorsal capsule of the elbow joint hi and welcome back to physio judo's the aim of roguelite assessment is to gain information on reactivity of the joint and of course articular problems such as capsular limitations in the elbow we can perform roll glide assessment in the humeral ulnar as well as the humeral radial joints for this assessment the patient lies supine in case of the humeroulnar joint the humerus is the convex joint partner and the ulna is concave so we will roll and glide in the same direction abduct the patient's arm to around 70 degrees while you stand lateral to it supinate the forearm and grab onto the distal ulna with one hand and place the other on the ulna as proximal as possible at an angle of 45 degrees in distal direction as this will be the gliding direction as well then perform the roll into flexion with the distal hand and glide into ventral and increasingly proximal direction with the other to assess the humeral radial joint the patient is in the same position as for the humeroulnar joint in this case the humerus is convex and the radius is concave so we will roll and glide into the same direction now stand on the medial side of the forearm supinate the forearm and grab onto the distal radius with one hand then place the base of the other hand over the radius as proximal as possible at a 90 degree angle then induce the roll with one hand by performing flexion and at the gliding component with the other hand in two ventral direction assess for movement quality during roll and glide possible pain provocation and end field for end field assessment roll and glide to end range then assess if further gliding is possible or not in a hypo mobile joint the glide has reduced relative to the roll component so no further gliding as possible if you feel that the end field or movement quality is abnormal you can directly move further from assessment to intervention as the movements that are performed are essentially the same when used as an intervention make use of the maitland grades of mobilization to those your techniques check the video in the top right corner to learn more about that concept okay you've reached the end of the video and if you like you can check out more videos on manual therapy in the playlists on the left again check the info icon in the top right corner for the featured video and also take a look at the links in the video description down below at last subscribe to our channel if you haven't yet and hit the bell icon next to the subscribe button this will let you know once we upload new videos as always this was ondrea's for physio tutors thank you very much for watching and I'll see you in another video bye
