Did you know that the ankle relates to decision making? This is why indecisiveness can cause instability in the ankle. Any time you “take a big step forward in life” and are
faced with a particularly big decision – such as moving house, changing your job, getting married – you are that much more prone to twisting your ankle, or worse. This is your body
telling you not to rush into things and even to “take a step back”.
• The Gallbladder and Liver meridians run along the outside/front of the ankle and
are the systems involved in planning and decision making where as the stomach/spleen control
the inside of the ankle which represent the ‘thinking through’ and worrying about things. So when people
have endless worry about a decision this will create instability in the ankle.
