Step Up To A Lunge

Leg Strengthening Exercise

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

Strengthen the muscles responsible for moving and supporting the ankles, knees, legs and hips.

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

Begin this exercise standing upright facing a curb, step, exercise step, or other elevated surface. Position yourself such that a long stride is needed to reach the step. Stride forward and onto the step, pause there briefly before returning to the starting position.

This exercise may be performed alternating between the two legs or continuously on one. Relax and repeat as instructed.

MalleoTrain® Ankle Support

  • Graduated compression - Compression gradually gets lighter towards the ends. Improves circulation and relieves muscle and joint soreness
  • Three-dimensional knit - Constructed to conform to the natural shape of the ankle so it fits snugly yet comfortably against your body and stimulates circulation
  • Contoured viscoelastic cushion - Soft pads behind each ankle bone helps to reduce pain and swelling
  • Machine washable
