Sorry, but there are no muscles to speak of in your ankle. If your experiencing chronic soreness, wight loss will help considerably.

Actually, there is a way. There's an excercise where you stand, point one foot out and lift it off the ground. You then point it downwards, then upwards. You repeat this as neccessary. Point, flex, point, flex. Switch to the other foot.

The ankle does not contain any muscles. To increase the force with which you can flex or extend your foot at the ankle joint, you will need to work on your calf and shin muscles.
