 Re: Struggling with ankle mobility
Sarah Clayton    7:40pm Nov 26 2017

Hi mike - I broke my fibula July 1st and was in a cast for 10 weeks. It definitely restricted my ankle movement and I did physiology for two months 3 times/week. My PT used to put a belt around my ankle while I was on the other knee and on the foot of the bad leg. He would pull to get flexion and hold. It was pretty uncomfortable but I swear this helped my get the full coward flexion I have now. I actually have almost no swelling and that used to be my biggest problem. Lots of work on the toes and also with elastic c helped with strength and flexibility. Good luck!
