Hold-Relax Stretch


Lay supine and wrap a strap around the ball of the foot. Pull the strap to dorsiflex the ankle. Then, contract the calf muscles to push the ball of the foot into the strap for five seconds without moving the foot. (This is called an isometric contractio­n.) Relax, and then pull the strap to bring the ankle deeper into dorsiflexi­on.
