Chronic Ankle Sprain with weak hip making recovery more difficult {Lacey Wa}

This young patient had a chronic ankle sprain that WOULD NOT GET BETTER,  He wore a brace but still had pain after more than 6 months.  To make matters worse, the hip on the right side (where the ankle sprain was) became weak from the pain.  You can see his right knee collapses in when he does a right leg mini squat.

Right knee collapses with single knee squat

After we gave him this exercise:

he and stretched the right front/inner hip, he had more control:

And now he runs side to side like this:

5 Tool Sport
UPPER EXTREMITY PLYOMETRICS (wait til the end 😂)
⠀⠀
Plyos are a mainstay exercise for athletes in the mid-to-late stages of rehab for upper or lower extremity injuries (or can also be used for prevention)😏. They begin to prepare the affected structures and tissues to tolerate forces and stress more closely related to sport. For the #thrower 🥎⚾️, we like to use these as a precursor before interval throwing programs.
⠀⠀
There are many ways of accomplishing this, but here we show how to use a rebounder/trampoline to achieve dynamic shoulder plyos.
1️⃣ Chest pass
2️⃣ Diagonals
3️⃣ Overhead chop
4️⃣ 0° IR
5️⃣ 90° IR
6️⃣ 0° ER
⠀⠀
All incorporate a controlled concentric to eccentric phase and have the added bonus of adjusting to an external object. What others do you like??
