Eversion and Inversion

Updated: Oct 14, 2020

Do you include inversion and eversion in your foot conditioning programme? ⬅️🤔➡️


Well it’s not too late to start! Maintaining equal strength through both borders of the lower leg will strengthen your arches and stabilise your ankles. ⚖️


Dancers are often reluctant to invert & supinate their feet, as they feel they will encourage the feet to sickle. However, strengthening the inner aspect of the deep calf is one of the most important things you can do to get a higher Demi point, ensure safe landings, and prevent injury.


If, like many dancers, the outer aspect of your calf often feels tight and irritated, instead of winging out into the band, focus on loading the muscles eccentrically. (Use your hand to remove tension from the band as you wing the foot, then slowly return to centre, resisting against the band).


Stay well, and look after those feet and calves! 🦶✨🦵
