Calf stretches can be done by using the wall for support. Both stretches below involve placing the affected leg back, balancing on the wall and keeping the heels down. Hold each stretch for 60 seconds and repeat three times. Do these stretches 2-3 times throughout the day.

 

Place your hands and arms against a wall and place your affected leg or foot back behind your body. Bend the your front leg and align your shin almost parallel with the wall. Lean forward. Both heels should stay on the ground. You should feel a stretch in the back of the calf on the affected side and you may also feel the stress in your hamstring. Place your hands against the wall and place your affect leg behind your body. Instead of keeping this knee straight, bend at both knees. The heels should stay on the ground. You should feel a stretch in the lower area of the calf.
