Lower Leg Tissue Mobilization

Ankle Mobility
Series One
Movement #6/7

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Place foot forward while you assume a lunge position. In video, we do this by placing foot on top of a plyo box.
  2. Take your hands and wrap them around your lower leg.
  3. Move into a loaded dorsiflexion position, maintaining grip.
  4. In this tensioned position, use your hands to mobilize your lower leg tissues. Move superior-inferior, side to side, and rotational (seen in video).
  5. Complete for 2 minutes each side.

 

TIPS:

  • Place your hands at different positions on your leg over the course of the time you’re performing this mobilization to target different tissues.

TARGETS:

  • Ankle mobility, soft tissue mobility
