The calf stretch is such a good healthy stretch and it is so easy to do;

  1. Sit comfortably against a wall, on the floor, with your affected leg stretched out in front of you.
  2. Loop a towel around the ball of your foot. Hold the ends of the towel tightly to avoid slipping. If a towel is too cumbersome, use a belt or band.
  3. Pull the towel toward you gradually keeping the leg straight.
  4. Hold stretches for 30 seconds each for the best result, unless you experience pain.
  5. Repeat 3 times each time you complete this stretch.
