The Importance of Ankle Mobility and Dorsiflexion
Written by Kim McLaughlin
When is the last time you paid attention to the mobility in your ankles?
Do you spend any time in your pre-warm up or post workout stretching focusing on your dorsiflexion?
A little attention in this area can go a long way. In fact, improved flexion of the foot can help your squatting, sprinting, strength, and your ability to avoid injuries in the knee, hips and low back areas.

The ankle is a hinge joint that allows the foot to move in the sagittal plane.
