Step by Step

  1. If you need to improve the general range of movement in your ankles then this is an excellent group of exercises
  2. Remember these exercises should be pain free during after and the next day. The most that you should feel is a strong stretch sensation
  3. Each exercise should be done for 10 repetitions and you should aim to perform all of these exercises between 4 to 6 times per day.
  4. Plantarflexion and Dorsiflexion:
  5. In long sitting, simply point your feet and toes downwards and away from your body then reverse the direction and pull your feet and toes up towards your shins.
  6. Inversion and Eversion:
  7. In long sitting, with your toes pointing up to the ceiling, simply turn your feet inwards so that the soles of your feet face each other, then reverse the direction and turn your feet outwards so that your soles face away from each other
  8. Remember flexibility takes time to establish so be patient.

Online Physiotherapy

Put simply this is Physio done via either telephone or video over the internet. Skype and facetime are examples of this.

Contrary to popular belief online physiotherapy can be very effective and it can help the same injuries that face to face physio can help. I have helped many people with injuries such as disc prolapses, tennis elbow, neck pain and much more).
