Ankle Sprain Exercise

3

Filed Under (Ankle Injury, Exercise Rehabilitation, Fitness) by Rick Kaselj



I got an email from a reader who was looking for some ankle sprain exercises.

Hi Rick,

I am wondering if you have any ideas for a calf exercise for a person with an ankle injury. They are non- weight bearing and have very little ROM in the ankle (a few degrees of flex/ext). The Dr. would like him to continue strengthening the leg, in particular the gastrocs, however pain levels are quite high.

Any suggestions?

Thanks! I have really enjoyed your updates and the muscle imbalances revealed.

I have one exercise for Nat.

It focuses on range of motion in the ankle and working the gastroc at a low level.

Here it is:
