Lower Body Exercises: Calf Stretch

This exercise both stretches and strengthens your lower body to help your back. Do the exercise as often as suggested by your healthcare provider. As you work out, don't rush or strain. Use an exercise mat, pillow, or folded towel to protect your knees and other sensitive areas.

  • Face a wall 2 feet away. Step toward the wall with one foot.

  • Place both palms on the wall and bend your front knee.

  • Lean forward, keeping the back leg straight and the heel on the floor.

  • Hold for 20 seconds. Switch legs.
