I’ve had the exact same issue. I play lots of volleyball, so jumping and landing is constant.
#1 thing that helps me with the motor control issues (assuming mobility and strength is up to par) – Get a thera-band/resistance band, and put it around both your legs at your knees. Now do anything and everything.
Walk (forward and side to side), squat, jump, land, etc. The band will force you to push your knee’s out. If you’re working on foot strength, you should start to feel the new muscles start to kick in and help keep pressure against the bands.
Eventually, your body will naturally want to push out and engage all the right muscles that the thera-band forced/influenced you to start using and conditioning.
