  • Stand next to a wall and place one foot in front of the other, its best to start closer to the wall approx. 5cm away
  • Whilst keeping your foot flat on the ground bend the knee with the aim of touching the wall
  • If you can touch the wall, move the foot back a centimetre each time until you find it difficult to reach the wall and feel a light stretch
  • Repeat/perform the exercise as instructed by your therapist as there is a few variations
  • Holding the stretch for 30 seconds up to a minute can be of benefit for people with stiffness in their ankle


  • If you are unsure of the stretch or are experiencing pain whilst performing the movement, please speak to your physiotherapist
