Exercises And Stretches To Improve Ankle Mobility

on Dec 27, 2019 11:00:00 AM By | Florida Spine and Injury | 0 Comments | chiropractic care
One important yet often overlooked part of our body are our ankles. Your ankle's range of motion affects many things you do on a daily basis, especially if you're an athlete. Ankle mobility plays a significant role in ACL injury prevention, performance in certain exercises like squats, and the improvement of your kicking mechanics in swimming. Ankle mobility can also prevent unwanted injuries that are due to a sudden change in speed or direction. When your ankles are flexible, it enables the tendons, ligaments, and muscles around the ankle to accommodate the sudden movements or changes in direction. This is useful even if you aren't an athlete. Since people often overlook their ankles, they likely have no idea what to do to increase their mobility. Below we will discuss several ankle stretches and exercises that can increase your ankle's mobility and contribute to your overall well being.
