Single Leg Heel Lowering Eccentrics

  • HOW: Start on a slightly elevated box with your heels off the edge. Push up onto the balls of your feet with both feet. Shift all your weight to your affected side so you are standing on one leg. Slowly lower yourself as far as your ankle will allow you. Go slow. Repeat
  • FEEL: You should feel your calf muscles working very hard to slowly lower yourself.
  • COMPENSATION: Go slow! Do not let your ankle “roll out”. You should feel even pressure between the inside and outside of the balls of your foot.
