The Assessment of your Foot and Ankle Pain  is interesting 

It requires Postural Standing Walking and Sitting considerations


Please have a look at the Physitract as one sends your information, advice and exercises to your mobile phone

It is important to make certain you have no yellow or red flags associated with your ankle pain. The NHS website offers you all the advice, which you can follow.

Once the red flags and yellow flags have been triaged one then goes on to self-care management and rehabilitation.

This is where the modern mini video clips provided by Physitrack is proving to be excellent as there is an excellent narrative on how to do the exercise as well of the video clip as well as the ability for you to say how much pain that particular exercise gives you.
