Active ankle eversion

Ankle eversion is the movement of turning the sole of the foot outwards and is controlled by the peroneal muscles on the outer calf.


Teaching Points:

  • The athlete starts in a side lying position with the ankle to be worked on top.
  • Start in inversion (with the ankle turned in) and move the foot upwards, turning the sole of the foot out.
  • Slowly return to the starting position under control.
  • An ankle weight can be added to the foot as shown to increase difficulty.
