Our ankles don’t get much attention throughout the day, but if we stand up all day, they work awfully hard. Consider paying them some much needed attention.
You can do this exercise standing or seated. If you stand all day at the office, I suggesting sitting down and straightening your legs out in front of you so that they are parallel to the floor. If you sit all day, stand up near a wall to help you balance.
Here’s are three different ways to move your ankles:
- Point and flex your feet. If you are standing, when you point your foot, you might find it a challenge to balance so hold onto the wall.
- Circle your ankles in one direction. If you are standing do one leg at a time.
- Move your ankles from side to side. This will not be a big range of motion. If you are standing you should also do this one leg at a time.
