Yoga Exercise - Ankle Bending

The ankle is composed of three joints called the tibia, the fibula and the talus which can all be affected by Arthritis. Arthritis in the ankle is characterized by damaged or worn cartilage which is accompanied by swelling and pain. In most cases, Ankle Arthritis is associated with fracture or repeated strain or sprain.

  1. Sit on the floor, your legs outstretched, your palms on the floor behind you. Your fingers should point out your hips or lean back against a wall.
  2. Bend your right foot back toward you.
  3. Exhale as you point your right foot and toes forward and down.
  4. As you inhale, bring your foot back toward you.
  5. Repeat 10 times.
  6. Do the same with your left foot. You can make two rounds of this exercise and after some practice, exercise both foot at the same time.

Therapy is very helpful in the early stages of Ankle Arthritis. Resting is also advisable. Weight reduction and regular low level exercise that does not stress your joint are also beneficial. Following the exercise above can help reduce your chances of getting Ankle Arthritis.
