Weak Ankle Exercises
To alleviate the intense amount of pain you may have been feeling in your ankles, it is important to participate in some weak ankle exercises. Ankle exercises are designed to offer the ankle support, as well as to strengthen the area so that you can continue to do the activities that you love.
While you do exercises that strengthen ankles, it is essential that you wear the proper support. At Medi-Dyne, we offer products that will do just that. Tuli’s® Cheetahs offer the right amount of shock absorption and comfort to reinforce the ankles when they are susceptible to intense pressure. In addition, the Cho-Pat® Dynamic Ankle Compression Sleeve is another product that allows users to have the support they need while they walk, run, jump, or participate in sports.
How to Strengthen Ankles
Some common exercises to strengthen ankles include:
- ProStretch Plus™ – Strengthen the ankle by sitting on a chair with your foot securely in the ProStretch Plus™ on the ground in front of you. Simply lift your toes as far as possible, and then push down with them, as if pushing a pedal in a car. Hold for 30 seconds, release, and repeat three times.
- StretchRite® – Sit on the floor with your feet out straight in front of you. Wrap the StretchRite® around the ball of the foot and hold securely with your hands. Pull back with your hands, while pushing forward with your toes. Do this for 20 seconds, release, and repeat three times.
