Ankle Plantarflexion/Inversion Reset with EDGE Mobility Band

Patients and clinicians often stretch the ankle into dorsiflexion as that is a common motion loss. However, if the perception of pain/stiffness is strong, the nervous system will not allow end range to be obtained.
A novel strategy to increase ankle mobility for loss of dorsiflexion is repeated ankle plantarflexion/inversion. This may be uncomfortable and if so, use of an EDGE Mobility Band wrapped in a figure 8 often helps reduce perceived threat. Try 10-20 reps of slow, end range loading and recheck ankle mobility.

I have made some guest appearances on a health educational program TV in Europe and, this experience, has made me follow my passion of sharing wellness information with others.
