Stretching is really important to help us recover quicker and feel less stiff following exercise. However, if you have experienced any trauma or injury to this area we would always recommend you consult a healthcare professional before starting to self diagnose. There’s a chance you will make your situation worse if you don’t know what your injury is.
Stretching can help prevent injury following exertion. Leg stretching such as this Soleus stretch is great for runners, cyclist, team sports, gym goers, walkers and hikers! Chiropractor Karen Habershon will show you here, how to carefully stretch your Soleus muscle. If this doesn’t feel like it’s stretching please check your position, alternatively it may be another muscle which is tight in your legs.
