Recovering from an ankle injury and trying to get your ankle strength back? Ankle plantar flexion is a simple way to exercise your ankle after an ankle injury like a sprain or strain.

To perform ankle plantar flexion:

  1. With your legs out in front of you, place a roll just under your ankle so your heel can move freely.

  2. Trying to keep your leg straight, push your foot down like you are pushing on a peddle, and then back up.
