Ankle Mobility refers to the flexibility of the ankle joint and its surrounding muscle and tendons. It is very important that your ankle is flexible so you will have increased movement during the activity. If your ankle is not flexible, it could lead to poor performance, sprain, and major injuries.

If you would like to boost your sports performance, and activity you have to stretch and strengthen your ankle. This will help you walk properly, and prevent your hip and knee from weakening. Most of all strengthening and stretching your ankle will prevent major injuries and accidents.
