Abstract

Triceps surae flexibility exercises are routinely prescribed as a component of lower extremity fitness and rehabilitation programs. Flexibility deficits, addressed without consideration of hindfoot position, may be associated with and perpetuate foot and ankle pain. This column presents an evidence-based modification to a traditional triceps surae stretching exercise.
