Calf Stretches Improve Game

Calf_StretchThe ankle is one of the most commonly overlooked areas when trying to improve mobility and flexibility. We have talked about the overhead deep squat numerous times and how failing the overhead squat can be detrimental to your golf swing. One of the most common reasons we see a failure of the overhead deep squat is a lack of ankle mobility.

Decreased ankle mobility, specifically dorsiflexion (bringing your foot towards your head), can be a result of a number of restrictions. The most common restrictions are tightness in the calf/achilles, and restriction of the subtalar joint. We always say “Assess, Don’t Guess”, but in this case you are pretty safe to work on both issues without the risk of doing more harm. If you would like to go through an assessment, there are quick and easy tests we can take you through.
