Peroneal Stretch

The peroneal muscles run down the outside of the lower leg and are difficult to stretch and so often neglected in a stretching routine.

Teaching Points

  • Sit in a chair with one ankle resting on the other knee.
  • With your hands, point the foot (plantarflex) and turn the sole of the foot upwards (invert).
  • Hold for between 10 and 30 seconds.
