Got ankle pain? Ankle plantar flexion with a resistive band is a great way to strengthen your ankle after a sprain, strain or other injury.

To perform ankle plantar flexion with a resistive band:

  1. With your legs out in front of you, place a roll just under your ankle so your heel can move freely. Place a resistive band around the ball of your foot.
  2. Keeping your leg straight, push your foot down like you are pushing on a peddle. Control the band slowly back up.
