Exercises

On this page, our Physiotherapists at Pure have worked collaboratively to compile a series of exercise rehabilitation plans which we recommend performing at home for help with your recovery.

 

The exercises are categorised in to different stages based on the current symptoms you are experiencing and the level of progress you have made in your recovery and rehabilitation journey.

 

The early programme is designed to maintain muscle and tendon flexibility in the ankle and keep the calf muscle active with a controlled load. The intermediate plan progresses to strengthening the calf complex through a larger movement and also targeting lateral ankle stability muscles (Peroneals). These is also a focus on improving single leg foot and ankle dynamic stability. Finally, the advanced plan loads the calf complex with full weight-bearing and introduces dynamic movement & impact. Also, another challenging single leg movement is incorporated to develop dynamic stability in the lower limbs.
