Weak Ankles: Plantar Flexion With Resistance Band
Adding the resistance band helps to strengthen the muscles of the arch. And a strong arch helps prevent over pronation (excessive rolling inward of the ankle).
- Sit on the floor with your right leg extended. Wrap one end of a resistance band around the ball of your right foot, and hold the other end in your hands. Keep toes flexed up.
- Slowly press your foot forward pointing it as you maintain the band's resistance, then return to the starting position.
- Do 20 reps, then repeat on left side.
