Ankle Sprain: Glute Med Strengthening
You might have a weak glute med muscle if you’ve sprained your ankle! Start by leaning your forearm into the wall and have your outside hip flared out. With your inner core engaged and your posture tall flex your inside knee up to your chest . Start by squeezing the outside hip in and drive across to the other hip and upwards. Bring the outside hip in line with the knee and foot below. Then release and drop your hip back out and repeat. Do 10 repetitions for 3 sets. A strong glute med muscle can help with better hip and pelvis stability. This can help you fully rehab the injured ankle and facilitate a recovery back to Physical activities and sports. If you have any pain consult your physiotherapist before continuing this exercise.
