Ankle Sprain & Strain – Lateral Block Hops

Stand beside a 20 inch high block that is about 20 inches wide as well. With your inner core engaged, perform a lateral hop onto the block and then hop down onto the ground to the other side.

Then do a lateral hop back to the start position to complete the repetition. Do 3 sets of 10 reps 3 times x/week.

This will help you develop more progressive strengthening so you can more readily return to your functional sports or activities that require dynamic ankle strength.

If you’re unsure about the exercise or have any uncertainty about where you’re at with the recovery of your ankle injury or sprain, consult your local Physiotherapist before continuing.
