Low Squat Hold And Move

Squat down keeping your heels flat on the ground as shown. Keep a straight back and hold onto something to help you to keep your balance. You may feel some pressure (but not pain) in your mid back, calves and front of the ankle. Stay squatting in this position for the duration indicated by your clinician. Shift your body weight around over your feet to increase the stretch into different locations. The goal is to improve ankle range and mobility.

Repeat as many times as is indicated.

Top Tips

You should only feel pressure or a stretch during this exercise NOT pain. If you feel pain back off and contact your clinician to ask them to review your form during this exercise.
