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 exercise plan is designed to maintain soft tissue flexibility and joint mobility in the ankle. This plan also includes two very useful self-massage techniques which will support recovery. The intermediate programme focuses on loading the affected structures in functional positions, whilst implementing single leg balance to challenge intrinsic foot strength & lower limb stability – aiming to increase resilience. Finally, the advanced programme places greater load through the structures targeted and introduces dynamic & impact actions, similar to that required in recreational and high-level sport.

Ensure you pay attention to the specific level of the exercises you have been prescribed (early, intermediate or advanced) and view only those videos so that you perform the correct exercises.
Although these exercises are recommended by us, we advise that you liaise with your Physiotherapist before attempting any exercises you have not been recommended.
If you experience continual worsening of pain/symptoms whilst performing any prescribed exercises, we recommended that you stop and contact your Physiotherapist.
