Hey everyone! I have been reading Becoming a Supple Leopard, and I love it so far. I have really terrible bottom-of-squat position, and many of the mobilization have really helped, but I am noticing a major road-block. Dorsiflexion of my right foot is noticeably limited, compared to my left foot. I can actually do a full pistol squat on my left leg, but once I lower to a certain depth on my right leg, I simply can’t go deeper without falling backwards.
You can have restriction from the cumulative effect of the repeated ankle tweaks.
The ankle issues that were more severe healed better because you were more restricted.
The mobs you are using aren’t working because you aren’t addressing the root cause of the issue or where the issue originates. Until this is addressed the symptoms will continue to show up.
“The ankle issues that were more severe healed better because you were more restricted.”
When you had a more serious injury there was more time before you were able to do some movements or have it bearing weight. It was tender so you had more down time so it had more time to heal before having weight or performing some skill.
In the cases with a lesser degree of injury you may have had weight on it too early or doing some movements or skills too soon because there wasn’t pain.
