The ankle is a complex structure made up of 28 bones and 55 joints. The ankle sustains the greatest load per surface area of all the joints in the body. In fact, an average sized male will absorb over 100 tons of pressure through each ankle while running just 1 mile. For this reason, it is important to have the correct amount of flexibility, strength, and coordination through the ankle. In cases where the ankle is already injured, a Physical Therapist can speed the recovery time, and then begin the restoration process of strength, flexibility, and coordination to reduce the risk of re-injury.
