Activity: Ankle evertor (peroneal) stretch with strap

X5

Summary:

A stretch for the ankle evertors located on the lateral or outer aspect of the lower leg. Namely peroneus longus and brevis (muscles that stabilize the foot/ankle laterally and assist with pushoff)peroneus longus, peroneus brevis)

Description:

  • laying supine (face-up), holding both ends of a non-elastic strap
  • hook the center of the strap under the ball of the foot, or just behind the ball of the foot at the front of the arch
  • raise the whole leg keeping it relatively straight, flexing from the hip, but not so far as to stretch the hamstrings (posterior aspect of the thigh)
  • pull up on the ends of the strap to dorsiflex the foot (flex foot upwards)
  • bias the stretch for the peroneals by pulling on the lateral or outer strap more than the medial or inner strap
  • NOTE: the stretch should be felt on the posterior and lateral (outside) aspect of the lower leg and not at the hamstring
