IMPORTANCE OF STRENGTHENING FEET AND ANKLES

 

SPORTS PODIATRIST, DR. ROBERT WEIL STATES, "PODIATRISTS SHOULD TAKE THE LEAD IN PROMOTING THE ROLE OF THE FOOT IN SPORTS OR HOW FOOT AND ANKLE CONDITIONING ARE KEY.  STRENGTHENING YOUR FEET AND ANKLES ARE ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO IMPROVE ALL ASPECTS OF SPORTS PERFORMANCE AND REDUCE INJURIES, INCLUDING SPRAINED ANKLES, WHICH ARE THE MOST COMMON OF INJURIES.  THE BODY'S FOUNDATION AND BASE OF SUPPORT ARE THE FEET, BUT OFTEN FOOT AND ANKLE TRAINING IS NEGLECTED UNLESS IT'S REHABBING AN INJURY.  IT MAKES MUCH MORE SENSE TO STRENGTHEN AND TRAIN THESE AREAS ROUTINELY AND PROACTIVELY.  RUBBER BAND AND PROPRIOCEPTIVE BALANCE EXERCISE IS A GREAT WAY TO DO THIS.  I HAVE NEVER SEEN AN ATHLETE WITH OVER-DEVELOPED ANKLES -- WORK EM!"

ALL OF THE FOOT SPECIALISTS WHO ARE EMPLOYED AT ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS ARE WELL-VERSED IN FOOT AND ANKLE STRENGTHENING AS WELL AS REHAB WITH A COMPLETE ARAY OF PHYSICAL THERAPY MODALITIES.
