Expanded Joint by Joint

This will fill the void for those that suggest Joint by Joint is oversimplified. I suspect with some more thought and sets of eyes, it could be broken down even more.

Gray’s feedback was to be cautious in terming mid-foot and mid-hand, so we must be attentive to recognize stability even in the context of wild ranges and function at different times. The varying role of the mid-foot during the gait cycle suggests control in the presence of change, so I am confident these are stable joint systems and should be trained as such.

Always kept in mind is that any stable joint must show its own mobility first before expecting natural and reactive stability.

upper c/s – mobility
lower c/s – stability
t-spine – mobility
lumbar – stability

proximal tib-fib – mobility
distal tib-fib – stability
talo-crural – mobility
subtalar – stability
midfoot – stability
big toe – mobility

t-spine – mobility
