Tightness in the calf can restrict both ankle and knee mobility and efficiency of walking and running


  • Lie on your back and sit up with legs long
  • Place the roller under your calf
  • Place your weight on your arms and roll your calf up and down the roller
  • You can change the intensity by increasing your weight on the roller
  • If you find a sore spot you can hold and wait on that point until the tightness subsides
  • Complete for 3- 5 mins on each calf


  • The roller can be significantly sore when using it to release the fascia and muscles.
  • Exercise caution and use to the level of soreness you can tolerate
  • Be mindful of not causing pain in the arms as you weight bear through them also   
  • If you are unsure, please speak to your physiotherapist
