QUICK ANKLE MOBILITY (45 seconds)
GUARANTEE: If your FOOT/ANKLE doesn’t bend well when it hits the ground, your knee or hip will eventually have a problem.
HONESTY: Most athletes athletes have NO IDEA that one side is different than the other.
WHY THIS HAPPENS:
- Old injury – The most common injury for young is a SPRAINED ankle. The most common reaction to a sprained ankle is to ignore the rehab work (or rush through it!!)
- Favoring one side – Whether it is from an injury somewhere else or an occupational/position based posture, when we shift our weight to one side more than the other, one foot will feel more stress than the other.
- Footwear – Both flip flops and heeled shoes (this includes running shoes!) can negatively influence ankle flexibility.
