Improve Ankle Mobility and Stability with the Ankle Dorsiflexion Exercise
Strengthen your ankle muscles and improve mobility with this ankle dorsiflexion exercise.
This exercise involves fastening a resistance band around the top of the foot and sitting with the legs extended in front. From there, the individual should bend the ankle back towards the body as far as possible, feeling a stretch in the front of the ankle. After holding the stretch for a few seconds, they can return to the starting position and repeat for the desired number of repetitions. The resistance band adds extra resistance to the movement, making it more challenging and effective at strengthening the muscles that dorsiflex the ankle. This exercise can be particularly beneficial for athletes who require ankle mobility and stability, such as runners and basketball players.
