Hi welcome to another video. In this video I'm going to share with you with you two question from two viewer  about ankle pain, the first viewer hurt his ankle while making a five foot jump on his skateboard, hit on the floor and hurt his ankle three months ago and now he is pain from this pain while trying to do another stunt and the second viewer said that the problem came with age.


Let's just take a look at what else can cause ankle pain. Ankle pain can be caused by a sudden twist of the ankle while doing sports like running, playing basketball or walking on uneven surface, also it could be causing from heel pain and last but not least I think  also caused by being over weight and your posture and how you hold your body because your ankle holds pretty much your whole body weight. Let's go me show you how to work on two ligaments in this video.

Ok I'm going to sit on the sofa to work on this. One leg up and show you how to work on the ankle. First we are going to work on the anterior talofibular ligament right down here, this part here and also the calcaneofibular ligament right here, right underneath this bone here. So we have anterior talofibular ligament and the calcaneofibular ligament right down here.

Ok let's zoom in to the leg right here. I want to show you two techniques, to break it down and also put pressure on it. So I'm going to use the index finger. Ankle right here rub it down this way in the area, sometimes it's hard to find the area because it's a tiny area. You can move, do a circle on your ankle to get into the area. Ok! once you find that area start rubbing on it, you can use oil, lotion or without anything. The tendon is this way so you rub against the fiber to break down all the tightness in there. If you have scar tissue you need to complete break it so that it will not reoccur again.
Next is also use your index finger find the pain and turn your leg around like this. Move around and once you find the spot, stretch your foot forward and backwards, forward and backwards and as the tightness loosen up try to stretch a little bit extra and come back a little bit more and back, That's to work on anterior talofibular ligament up here and same thing down here, look for the calcaneofibular ligament right here and this ligament goes down this way.

Move you ankle around until you find the tightness and rub on it this way. So what you do is rub against this way or this way like such. Find the spot and rub on it, or put your finger on the pain area and turn ok once you find the spot. Then press on it, move a little bit come back press come back. As the area loosen up you can add a little bit more stretch, push it to the back and loosen up that way.
To finish up use your pad of the hand to rub the area to warm it up like such or rub, rub, rub it like this or like this with your hands and that's it!
