Ankle Strengthening Exercises for Runners & Athletes

Ankle Strengthening Exercises for Runners & Athletes

Regardless of your sport, ankle pain and foot problems are one of the quickest ways to end up on the sidelines instead of participating in the action. Most of us assume that because we are exercising, our feet are getting a workout too. And while that’s sort-of true – doing specific foot stretching and ankle strengthening exercises as a part of your training program has added value to ensure you will avoid foot pain and ankle injuries. Have you ever experienced a sprained ankle, or other foot injury? Do you know that because of a previous injury, the chances of re-injury are much higher? All that limping around while things hurt can create muscle imbalances that may not get addressed during your recovery. A little extra emphasis on foot care can go a long way to keeping you in the game and participating in the sports and activities you love. This is a re-post of an article I wrote a while back with ankle exercise tips to avoid injury. Always nice to have a reminder & refresher on things to do to keep your feet fit! Help keep your feet and ankles in tip-top training condition with these excellent ankle strengthening exercises.
