Soleus Stretch

The Soleus muscle
Relevant anatomy: The soleus muscle and the gastrocnemius muscle are plantar flexors, which means they bend the foot back. The soleus acts to hold your leg firmly on your foot when you are standing. It arises from the posterior head of the fibula and down about a quarter of its shaft. Further on it arises from a fibrous band between the two bones and then along the soleal line on the tibia. Its fibers feed into a large tendon feeding in from above and both sides of the tendon. The tendon joins with the Achilles tendon or tendo calcaneous, the tendon for the gastrocnemius muscle lying superficial to the soleus muscle. The tendons join and insert on the calcaneous bone, the heel bone.

Soleus Stretch

Instructions :Stand with both knees bent, toes forward, and involved foot back gently lean into the wall until stretch is felt in lower calf. Hold for 20-30 seconds and repeat for 5 to 7 times.
