To restore normal arthrokinematics by decreasing dysfunctional joint alignment and then in turn allow more uniform tensile stress applied at the tendon during activities Folk, 2001 MWM was used to reposition the 1st MCP with extension movement and therefore decrease pain and improve ROM.
To resolve any confusion with interpretation, we should define the movement plane with respect to the plane of movement through space, which is not to be confused with the multiplanar perspective of arthrokinematics of joint movement.
