Foot mobility: Don’t neglect 25% of your body


Is your training program neglecting 25% of your body? How much time are you spending on foot and ankle mobility? As clinicians assessing foot mobility, here are just a few of the questions we need to ask:
1. does the talus move in the tunnel?
2. is the training wheel (5th Metatarsal) functioning well
3. does the navicular move, or has it “dropped”?
4. does the big toe extend like it should during gait?
Foot restrictions can cause foot, knee, hip, and lower back pain. If you are not working on foot mobility exercises yet, start today!

Let me know if you have any questions,
