How Often: 30 second holds. 1 to 2 minutes at a time. Daily & often

Description: Standing on the edge of a step, ideally barefoot, slowly let the heels drop down to feel a stretch around the front or back of the ankle/calf. Hold this position, then raise up, before repeating again.

Top Tip: Only go as far as your pain allows. Try to move further if pain and/or stiffness becomes easier.

Goal: Improve mobility and reduce pain/stiffness around the foot/ankle.
