CALF STRETCH 2


This stretch is actually the simplest of the calf stretches.

Find a step, or a curb with a tree or pole nearby. Use the pole to maintain your balance throughout the stretch. If something to lean against is not readily available, you might try using another walker to lean against. Place your toes as close to the edge of the step that will allow you to maintain your balance.

Keeping your legs straight, lower your heels as much as possible. You should feel the stretch in your calves. To stretch your calves further, try moving your feet further off the edge of the curb. Additionally, you can stretch your calf further by only lowering one leg at a time. You can place the leg you are not stretching wherever you want, but be careful to maintain your balance.
