Lateral Hop And Stick With Bosu

When the time is right, I have every individual that has experienced a lateral ankle sprain perform this exercise. Here is why…   Lets breakdown what is the most important movement an individual needs to CONTROL after a lateral ankle sprain… lateral movements! When you move laterally (if it is your right ankle -> moving to your right) the ankle has to decelerate an external inversion force to maintain contact with the ground. If you were to hop to your right and loss your balance to the right, your big toe as well as the medial side of your foot would come off the ground positioning your ankle into inversion.   You can make this exercise easier or harder! It doesn’t have to look like this…   Remove the bosu, decrease the distance covered, provide upper body support, you decide! Yes these are advanced lateral ankle sprain exercises, however you can modify and regress everything shown thus far to challenge the sprained ankle appropriately! The beauty of all these advanced lateral ankle sprain exercises is that you can alter them however you’d like! If you’re concerned about slipping or the person slipping be sure to wear shoes!
