WEAK ANKLES / ANKLE INSTABILITY
A natural approach – no orthotics, no surgery, no medication
What are Weak Ankles / Ankle Instability?
"The most common injury around the ankle joint involves the ligaments, especially in sports involving jumping. When a joint is subjected to a force greater than what it can withstand it will be forced out of alignment (subluxated). Often rehabilitation of these injuries is inadequate resulting in a high rate of recurrence and ankle instability because the cause of the problem has not been addressed. Hence, a subluxated ankle will ultimately lead to further instability and cause one to resprain the ankle. This mis-alignment will also apply further stress to the surrounding tendons which can cause them to be over worked and become inflamed."
How to fix ankle pain and instability
Diagnosing which structures around the ankle are sore and correlating that to the individual’s history and clinical findings is the beginning of fixing ankle pain and instability. Identifying if there is an underlying foot / ankle subluxation and correcting that through foot mobilisation and corrective exercises is the key to solving this problem. This will take the stress off the muscles and ligaments and reduce the instability.
