Ankle Wrapping for Mobility Exercises

Brian Beatty, PT, CFP

Gaining ankle mobility after a sprain can be challenging.

One technique that we often use is to place some sort of elastic wrap around the front of the ankle joint to provide support and glide to the joint while then performing mobility exercises.

What to use and how to keep in in place are two big challenges to this useful set of exercises. We have found that using a old thin (700cc or road bike type) inner tube works best. This tends to work particularly well if you use a variation of a figure 8 loop around the heel and forefoot to lock the the wrap in place.

Brian and Andy helped me overcome a herniated disc that had me in pain 24/7. Within a few visits I was back to working out at full capacity without pain. Brian also helped me improve my run stride and movement of my posterior chain in the process. I'm stronger, faster, and healthier now having worked with them than I was before the injury.
