View Full Version : KLT causes ankle soreness
03-15-2010, 10:23 AM
I've been working on my form to be aware of KLT, knee little toe. I'm finally doing it! But the next day, my ankles are sore (muscle sore, no ankle pain).
Will this go away eventually? Does this mean I'm doing it wrong?

I just have a quick minute. It could just be your ankles getting stronger since you are a beginner and your ankles aren't used to that kind of activity. Or it could be a form issue - I'm wondering if you could be rolling your ankle out a bit. You want to keep the bottom of your foot in contact with the ground and transfer your weight to the middle to outside portion of your foot (so last three toes). If you roll to the side of your foot you could be causing the ankle soreness.
Just something to be mindful of.
Gotta run. I'll try to pop back in later and maybe have another thought or two.

Generally, any soreness is normal. Are you wearing good laterally supportive cross-trainer type shoes? These will provide additional stability. Also, ensure that you are not bowing the ankles. As you get stronger with KLT, if the inside of your shoe is lifting off the ground, it may be time for you to apply the no big toe/press big ball joint tweak.

Angela, I was just looking at your stats you have written.....CONGRATULATIONS! .....that is awesome for 2 weeks of T-Tapping!
You have gotten some great advise from Tamara and Kirsten. Let us know how you are doing with your ankles.

I had the same problem and I got a better shoe and the problem went away.
There I was in the shoe store trying on pairs of tennis shoes and getting in T Tapp stance to decide which were best! :lol:

Thank you for all the help (and encouragement!)
I have a good pair of running shoes, had myself fitted for the right pair, so I don't think it's the shoes.
I'm not sore after last night's workout, so maybe it is just that my ankle muscles were adjusting like y'all suggested. It took 2 weeks to adjust I guess!
And Nuggan! I love that! Made me laugh out loud! :)

Hey Angela-- Running shoes did not work for me. I needed the support of good cross trainers for proper foot support. But that's ME. Good luck!!
