This exercise stretches the muscles at the back of the lower leg (the
calf) and the Achilles tendon. Do this exercise 3 or 4 times a day, 5 days a
week. To do this stretch:
Repeat the exercise with the back knee bent a little, still keeping your back heel on the floor. This will stretch a different part of the calf muscles.
Talk with your doctor or physical therapist if you have questions
about how to do this or any other exercise.
