Single Leg Balance

Ankle Injury Recovery Exercise

Physical Therapy Videos Put Together By Real Orthopedic Specialists To Help You Recover And Stay Injury-Free.

Restore or enhance balance following ankle injury.

When the ligaments that support the ankle become compromised by injury, the Bauerfeind MalleoTrain Ankle Support can enhance stability to reduce pain and improve function.


Begin standing upright on feet spread hip-width apart. Step forward onto one foot and hold your balance on that foot. Try to maintain your balance for 10 seconds.

Avoid locking your knee, keep both the hip and knee slightly bent and attempt to keep your body as still as possible during this exercise.

Relax and repeat as your ability allows.

  • Contoured viscoelastic cushion - Soft pads behind each ankle bone helps to reduce pain and swelling.
  • No rigid parts - Comfortable to wear and allows full range of motion.
  • Breathable Train active knit - gentle on the skin and extremely comfortable to wear.
