Prevent aching ankles

The ankles are pivotal to joint health because any lack of movement or pain that causes abnormal movement is multiplied up to all other joints that are consequently fatigued due to compensation for this irregular movement in the ankle.

The ankle roll is a good exercise to use to ensure smooth movement through this critical joint.

People that have had ankle injuries in the past especially from sport should definitely be using an exercise such as the ankle roll to maintain flexibility in supporting muscles and keep the proper range of movement in this joint.

Arthritis in the ankles can be very debilitating because it is a main weight bearing joint so this simple exercise is a small time investment to avoid much worse pain in the future.
