For a healthy ankle joint you need to move and use the joint. Ankle circles or CARs (Controlled articular rotations) are a way to:
- Maintain range of motion
- Increase the health and longevity of your joints
- Act as a screening process to detect limitations or pain
Dr Notley, Winnipeg Chiropractor and Athletic therapist, demonstrates how he performs ankle circles in this video
The intent during this exercise is to be active in the process and attempt to work at the outer limits of the joints motion.
If you are experiencing ankle pain with this movement then you should seek care.
