Ankle Sprain: Bosu Ball Knee Highs
Place the opposite foot forward onto the Bosu Ball while having the opposite arm also forward. Position yourself in a running stance with your core muscles engaged below the belly button. Bring the knee up towards the chest matching the motion with the opposite arm and then bring the foot back down with control.
A few things to look out for when you’re doing Bosu Ball Knee Highs is to control the motion of the foot coming back down and too also keep the arms and knees from crossing the mid line of the body and prevent the low back from arching by keeping it in neutral. Repeat this for one minute on each side doing 3 sets 2 times per day.
This exercise strengthens the ankle and entire lower quadrant and leg and can help you rehabilitate your functional running strength after an ankle joint, muscle or ligament injury.
If you have any problems doing this exercise or are unsure about what you are doing, consult your local Physiotherapist before continuing.
