Description

Lack of multiplanar ankle mobility can wreak havoc up the kinetic chain, leading to an increased risk of injury through the knees and lower back. Instead of trying to “fix” our client’s ankle mobility, imagine a scenario where we empower our clients to easily self–assess, and then address their ankle function. This interactive session will explore ways to empower our clients with the ability to self–assess their ankle mobility. Then, using a systematic approach, we’ll provide them with solutions for enhancing their ankle function.
