The ankles are often a sneaky joint that, when limited, can cause pain and dysfunction in other areas of the body; specifically the knees, hips and lower back.
For some reason we tend to forget about this joint, probably because we constantly throw them in sneakers and think of them as appendages that simply get us from point A to point B.
Did you know that the foot itself adapts to the surfaces you stand on? Or that it helps bring stability to the ankle joint so it can effectively perform it’s job?
Did you know as you squat, run, jump, and move around, lack of ankle mobility can effect knee mechanics and cause compensations you may not be aware about?
The ankle joint is a keystone area of the body that every person should focus on. Here is one of my favorite drills from the Functional Range Conditioning system used to expand your ankle’s range of motion.
