Ankle Self Mobilisation Drill – An Osteopaths Perspective
In the video below you will see osteopath Heath Williams of Principle Four Osteopathy demonstrating an ankle self mobilisation drill. He places his hand across the front of the ankle (literally at the junction point of the where the tibia and fibular meet the talus) and provides an posterior inferior oblique glide with the supporting hand as he actively dorsiflexes the ankle (knees drives forwards and backwards). This strategy has been employed in an effort to help facilitate greater range of motion through the talocrural joint i.e. ankle dorsiflexion in which he is limited. This is performed for several sets of 30-45 seconds.
