Ankle Mobility Stretches

Below is your ankle mobility stretching program.

During your DARI Motion Screen it was noted that you had restricted ankle mobility.  To improve this joints function and reduce its vulnerability complete the following stretches to improve your overall motion health.

Complete this program every day for 4 weeks and then schedule your next DARI Motion Screen.

After completing 1 set rest for at least 1 minutes before starting the next set.  If pain is experienced stop the exercise.

Ankle Mobility - Exercise 1

Calf Pressure - Foam Roller

  1. Sit on the floor placing the lower calf on top of the foam roller.

  2. Using your arms and hips to regulate pressure, move the calf over the roller finding the places of highest tension.

  3. This may include tilting the leg side to side, and travelling from the bottom of the achilles tendon to the backside of the knee. 

  4. If more pressure is desired, the free leg may be placed atop the targeted leg.
