Eccentric Ankle Inversion

Eccentric ankle inversion works the ankle invertors eccentrically. This means they are lengthening whilst at the same time contracting. This exercise forms part of our ankle sprain rehablitation program.


Muscles worked

The muscle which invert the ankle are:

  • Tibialis posterior
  • Tibialis anterior

The muscles primarily responsible for inverting the ankle are the tibialis anterior and the tibialis posterior. The tibialis anterior is located in the front of the leg and helps lift and invert the foot. The tibialis posterior, found in the back of the leg, supports the arch and also contributes to foot inversion. These muscles work together to allow for the inward motion of the foot.
