Are there any stretching exercises I can do to help my ankle arthritis?

Are there any stretching exercises I can do to help my ankle arthritis?

Yes: Arthritis in any joint should be exercised primarily through stretching or "range of motion" exercises. For the ankle, I encourage patients to improve their range of motion by dorsi-flexing (toes towards you) and plantar-flexing (toes pointing away from you.) additionally, making clockwise and counter-clockwise circles with your toes also helps. Remember, "motion is lotion." always keep moving!
