Self Talus Ankle Mobilization
Ankle mobilizations can improve dorsiflexion.
Ankle injuries are commonplace in athletics. An ankle sprain can be mild where ice, elevation, and rest results in full recovery in 7-10, or severe where immobilization in a boot is necessary and lasting 6 weeks. In either case the talus bone may sublux forward (anteriorly) and prevent full dorsiflexion of the ankle.
