How does a wobble board help?Wobble boards work to rehab an injured ankle in several ways:
- Improves range of motion
Injured ankles tend to become stiff ankles--a problem that can potentially lead to re-injury. A wobble board will work your ankle to move in all motions and help keep the joint mobile.
- Improves ankle strength
After an ankle injury, the muscles that surround the ankle become weak. This can lead to chronic ankle pain and potentially to re-injury of the joint.
- Improves proprioception
Proprioception is the ability of your body to provide feedback to the brain. After an ankle sprain, the proprioception of the joint can be damaged, leading to problems controlling ankle movements. The balance board can help 're-train' the ankle joint.
