    Christina,

    In the ROADMAP, it refers to use of DF stop to address excessive DF or excessive PF. Of course I understand the excessive DF component but would you elaborate on the PF component of the document? Thank you!

    Hi Crystal,

    Good question! My best understanding of this part of the algorithm is this: If someone has excessive plantarflexion/knee extension, they likely have knee instability/quad weakness that places them at risk for knee buckling. The dorsiflexion stop provides a guard against potential buckling. Hope this helps!

    Thank you! That was my rationale as well!
