Talar Tilt Test

 Talar Tilt Test

  • The Talar Tilt Test is used to examine the integrity of the calcaneofibular /deltoid ligament and Anterior Talofibular ligament.

  • The patient lies in the supine or side lying position with the foot relaxed.
  • The foot is held in the anatomic (90°) position, which brings the calcaneofibular ligament perpendicular to the long axis of the talus.
  • Talus is then tilted from side to side into adduction and abduction
  • The laxity is compared to the contralateral side.

  •  POSITIVE TEST: Excessive movement on adduction
