First of all, im not sure if this was the correct section to post this in, so ifs its wrong, apologies emoticon

Now down to business, about 18 months ago i broke my left ankle and had to have a metal plate and pins put into my leg See Image Below



Impressive emoticon

Anyway, 18 months on my ankle is still slightly swollen(not a great deal but still), but ive been to the drs and been assured nothing is wrong and its to be expected to a degree, which is something im just going have to live with.

One big downside is i have lost rather alot of the flexibility in my left ankle / foot (In relation to being able to bend it enough) which makes it rather difficult, almost impossible to do calf stretches the traditional way, which in turn causes me to get cramps in my calf when i work out (especially during cardio, such as plyo)

So i was wondering if there was any other ways of stretching my calf to help prevent this from happening in the future.

Regards

Joe
