How to Fix Ankle CRACKING and POPPING Sounds

Dr. Rowe shows how to fix ankle popping, snapping, and clicking sounds FOR GOOD.

As a bonus, all of these exercises can be done AT HOME and may help get rid of ankle click, pop, and crack sounds in as little as 30 SECONDS!

This video will be broken up into an EASY, effective step-by-step guide that’s going to target the main causes of pop and crack sounds in (and around) the ankles.

In the FIRST part, we’re going to tackle a huge culprit of snapping ankles, that is muscle tightness and irritation to muscle tendons. We’re going to go over a simple and effective self massage that will help loosen everything up and get the ankles, Achilles tendon, and calves moving more smoothly.

The SECOND part is going to focus on a big instigator of ankle popping and clicks: lack of joint mobility. Easy stretching exercises are shown that will help improve ankle movement, and help with issues such as osteoarthritis and crepitus.

THIRD, we’ll focus on fixing muscle imbalances and weakness (which may lead to pops and cracks) in and around the ankles with strengthening exercises.

WATCH now and get rid of ankle snapping and popping sounds for good!
