The foundation for almost every athletic movement begins with the feet and ankles. Limitations in ankle mobility can lead to functional and athletic limitations and can also put an athlete at a high risk for lower body injuries. Even though the ankle joint is integral for effective movement, it remains one of the most overlooked facets of athletic performance.
At Champion’s QUEST, our athletes work on increasing their range of motion and ankle mobility in our flexibility clinics. Athletes also develop single leg strength, balance, and stability during our Strength clinics to reduce the likelihood of injuries. For more information on injury prevention or to schedule an athletic evaluation, contact Coach Kyle.
