THE DECLINE BOARD | FOR THE PRACTITIONER

The Decline Board is angled at 25 degrees. Since the development of the use of a Decline in eccentric rehabilitation by Tendon expert Jill Cook, much research has shown its benefits to:

Improve calf flexibility without impinging the ankle anteriorly. This is crucial to restore ankle dorsiflexion Range of Movement (ROM).

A loss of ankle dorsiflexion ROM leads to an increase in ground reaction forces and thus Achilles and Patella tendon loading e and ankle injuries, and is well described as a major cause of Anterior Cruciate ligament tears in the athlete as well as patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) in individuals.

THE DECLINE BOARD | FOR THE USER

The Decline Board is angled at 25 degrees. Since the development of the use of a Decline in eccentric rehabilitation by Tendon expert Jill Cook, much research has shown its benefits to:

  1. Rehabilitate Tendon injuries, especially the Patellar Tendon.
  2. Eccentrically strengthen and build the quadriceps muscle. Great training for closed chain exercise, such as cycling and downhill skiing.
  3. Effectively stretch the calf muscle. Improving flexibility improves lower limb biomechanics.
  4. Improve lower limb biomechanics / alignment to improve or reduce injury and improve performance.
