Step by Step

  1. This exercise is a high level exercise to strengthen the ankle
  2. Like any exercise this should be pain free or shouldn’t increase existing pain levels, during, after and the next day.
  3. It is normal to feel some delayed onset muscle soreness between 48-72 hours but this should be manageable
  4. This exercise can be done with a barbell or dumbbells for the resistance
  5. Turn your ankle into inversion so that you are standing on the outside of your foot
  6. Now stand only on that leg, next bend the knee and hip as to squat down while keeping your back straight so you are hip hinging, drop you bottom down and backwards
  7. The depth is taken to just below parallel with the thighs if you are able to.
  8. Once at the bottom then push back up to return to the start position.
  9. Perform your full set this way and once completed then also perform this exercise the other way around
  10. For strengthening you should perform 6-10 reps to fatigue
  11. You should perform 3-5 sets with 3 minutes rests
  12. This session can be done 2-3 times per week
  13. For endurance you should perform 15-25 reps to fatigue
  14. You should perform 3-5 sets with no more than 30 second rests
  15. This session can be done 2-3 times per week

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).
