muscle test

Karen-

That is terrific news! Ok, now some of us want to know what muscle in the foot, what do you press against/feel? It's like the heel/toe walk, etc...
It would be interesting to hear more on what they did.

I was sitting opposite him with my feet on his knees. Firstly he asked me to push my toes up against his hand as hard as I could and then press them down. There is a small muscle just below the ankle that sticks out when you do both (I can't remember what it's called). He told the student that was the place to look for atrophy rather than the calves or anywhere else. He didn't ask me to walk on toes/heels, although I told him that I could!
