stretching exercises to help PF

Posted by Carol on 7/28/98 at 16:37 (001099)

Hi,

Just found this message board today. It's nice to know that I'm not alone in my agony. Spouse doesn't really understand since he's not in pain. I heard that stretching exercises might help but they never gave any examples of what to do. does anyone have any tips they could share with a fellow sufferer? Thanks

Welcome to the cite (altho. I'm sorry you have Pf, we are glad to have you). Somewhere on this cite, Scott has a whole article on stretching and it has pictures, I'm sure. I would just spend some time and go thru the entire cite carefully, as there is a ton of information here! Good luck, and I hope some of the info. helps you!

Stretching at night with a towel seemed to help a lot. Never realized that stretching out the calf muscle really makes a difference!
