Improve Ankle Mobility for Better Balance

Use the Standing Agitator Exercise to Free Up Your Feet, Ankles and Heels

Heels and ankles need to be limber and move freely so that they can help us balance on uneven surfaces.  Check to see if you have strong, flexible heels and ankles with this quick and easy ankle mobility exercise.

Test your balance by standing on one foot.  Do you have a little “play” in your foot and ankle to keep you on balance, or is your ankle stuck/frozen?  With good movement through the heel and practicing that agitator exercise in the long run it’s going to help with better balance and healthy mobility for your feet.

The Agitator Exercise

After doing the Agitator Exercise are you more aware of the movement at your ankles and heels?  When you started, did you feel “stuck?”  If it is hard for you to tell, get with a friend and have them stand behind you while you are “agitating” or twisting, to watch your ankles and heels for movement.  Ideally, you want to see (and feel) your feet shifting from the inside of one foot to the outside of the other, and switching sides as you change directions.
