Soleus Calf muscle stretch

by admin on September 13, 2010

Everest Therapeutics demonstrates proper stretch of your solias muscle, which is a muscle deep in the calf. Position yourself against a wall, using your hands for support.

Both knees are slightly bent, with one leg in front of the other.

The leg being stretched is the back leg. Keep your heel on the ground, and a light bend in the knee. This will produce a stretch solely in the solias.

To increase the stretch sensation, bring your front knee closer to the wall, if needed.

Keep the sensation of the stretch, mild to moderate. Hold this position for a minimum of 30 seconds, to a maximum of 90 seconds. This will produce an effective lengthening of the solias muscle. Be sure to stretch both legs.

Duration : 0:0:59
