Ankle Sprains? Flat Feet?

ImageClients come in all the time with complaints of ‘flat feet’ or ankle sprains.  Doctors all recommend that we ‘strengthen’ the ankle and work on ‘balance exercises.’  New Flash: most ankles are plenty strong! They’re just not that smart. What they don’t have is proprioception, or position sense. They don’t know what to do when the heel hits the ground or when push-off occurs. Through proper cuing, releasing of the right tissues & guiding what proper weight-bearing is supposed to feel like, client are better able to load their foot & with much less effort.  That’s EFFICIENCY! That’s BETTER!
