Try This Exercise to Relieve Heel, Ankle, and Shin Pain

Posted by Bruce Carrington on

The stretching strap utilized in this image allows for strengthening of the plantar flexors and stretching into dorsiflexion. These exercises are great for those who are not yet advised to weight bear in their recovery or for whom weight bearing is uncomfortable. The convenient loops on the band allow the individual to ensure the foot stays in a neutral position throughout the exercise. By utilizing this combined approach of strengthening, stretching, and overall ankle mobility the best outcomes can be achieved for those suffering from plantar heel pain, a sprained ankle, shin splints and more!
