Is Your Ankle Stiff or Tight?

October 8, 2019

Improve Your Ankle Mobility

By James Goodwin, PTA, CSCS
Director of Athletic Performance

Have you ever twisted or broken your ankle, injured your leg, been casted, braced, or are just plain stiff or inflexible? Then James has a few exercises that can help.

Movement Prep 1: Ankle Mobility

*Perform 10x each ankle with a 3 sec hold at end range

 

 

*Position foot few inches away from the wall with foot straight.

 

 

 

*Keeping foot flat on the ground, try and reach the wall with your knee, preventing your heel from lifting up. Be sure your knee is aligned down the middle of the foot, do not let your knee cave inward. Again, if your heel lifts off the ground, move closer to the wall. You should feel a stretch in the lower calf.
