ANKLE DORSIFLEXION MOBILITY — One of the most important goals after an ankle sprain is to attain full ankle ROM again. Not achieving full ROM after an ankle sprain is one of the poor prognostic factors of delayed return to sport and reinjury. . Here are a few of my favorite ways to work ankle dorsiflexion ROM. I use some of these exercises usually during my warm up for leg days. I have also been doing back squats with a focus on driving my knees forward and pausing at the bottom to really load into ankle dorsiflexion. .
