Physical Therapist Dr. Colin Miller demonstrates how you can work on your stabilizers. The stabilizers, peroneals and posterior tibialis, are the main muscles that aid in preventing sprained (rolled) ankles. These muscles are usually overlooked and under trained causing athletes to be at a higher risk for injury. When performing these exercises, make sure to perform them at a slow and controlled rate to tax and provide as much tension as possible through the movement. Perform 3 sets of 15 reps in both directions.
