Ankle care

Post by Pope John Brawl » Tue Nov 29, 2016 1:11 pm

Some of the SkSk101 group were asking me about ankles on Sunday.

Ankles take a bit of a beating when you play derby and lots of skaters probably have their own routines for taking care of their ankles.

This is a really good video of exercises you can do regularly to take care of them https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QA5k6p_Mgp4

I also *really* recommend getting a lacrosse ball to roll out your feet and calves particularly after practice - eg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipCacnEFCRY

Ankle soreness quite often comes from tightness in the feet / calves / shins so these are important bits too.
