Fix Your Ankle Sprain Quickly with This Move
Your ankle pain should not stop you from doing exercises you enjoy!
The video above addresses one specific cause of pain from a lateral ankle sprain: an anteriorly shifted lateral malleolus. That means your ankle bone (lateral malleolus) is out of place.
Why Do I Have Ankle Pain?
When your lateral malleolus is too far forward, you can experience a pinch in the outside front corner of your ankle.
What Can I Do To Fix My Ankle Pain?
Sit on a chair or the floor and grab your ankle bone (lateral malleolus). Pull that bone backward and repeatedly turn your foot toward the inside. Always rotate your foot back to neutral to reset between repetitions.
If you repeat this for 20-30 repetitions, and if your ankle bone was out of place, it will feel much better to walk.
