After an injury or surgery, an exercise conditioning program will help you return to daily activities and enjoy a more active, healthy lifestyle. Following a well-structured conditioning program will also help you return to sports and other recreational activities.
Podiatrists at Foot Clinic NI will talk to you about which exercises will best help you meet your rehabilitation goals.
Strength: Strengthening the muscles that support your lower leg, foot, and ankle will help keep your ankle joint stable. Keeping these muscles strong can relieve foot and ankle pain, prevent further injury, and promote lower limb health and stability.
Flexibility: Stretching the muscles that you strengthen is important for restoring range of motion and preventing injury. Gently stretching after strengthening exercises can help reduce muscle soreness and aid in joint mobility and muscle health.
Target Muscles: The muscle groups of the lower leg are targeted as well as the tendons and ligaments that control movement in your feet.
