Range of Motion Exercises

Ankle Range of Motion: Sit on the floor with your leg stretched out in front of you.  Keeping your knee stable, practice stretching your ankle in all directions: left, right, toes towards your body and toes towards the floor.  This can also be accomplished by spelling the different letters of the alphabet with your foot.  When a sprained ankle heals, it can hinder the range of motion on one side, causing instability. A strong, flexible ankle will be resistant to spraining and help with overall balance.
