It is certainly possible to strengthen ankles on one’s own. Simple exercises can be performed on a daily basis that can build ankle strength over time, which can help prevent injuries and chronic instability through the future. Before starting any form of exercise regimen, however, we do recommend consulting with one of our experts here at Martin Foot & Ankle first to determine the best and safest route to benefit you. This is especially true if you have any current ankle problems or have had ankle injuries in the past. It is best not to risk starting out with certain moves that might place you at a higher risk of falling or injury before you are prepared for them.
