The final video in our four-part series shows exercises targeting arthritis pain in your ankles.
Range of motion exercises for ankles
From a seated position, lift one foot slightly off the floor. Alternate flexing your foot toward you so your toes point upward, then point your toes away from you. The movement should resemble pumping a brake pedal on a car. Repeat 10 times with each foot.
Stand with feet shoulder-width apart. Rise up on your toes, lifting your heels off the ground. Hold onto a countertop or the back of a sturdy chair if you need to. Hold the position for 5 seconds. Relax and repeat the movement 10 times.
