Why is it important?

Eccentric muscle contraction could be considered a critical component of ankle control during virtually all ankle joint movements. Furthermore, eccentric muscle actions are more representative of dynamic ankle stabilization mechanisms


the restoration of a normal eccentric inversion, eversion, and plantarflexion strength may prevent recurrent lateral ankle ligament sprain.
