Your healthcare provider may recommend exercises to help you heal. Talk to your healthcare provider or physical therapist about which exercises will best help you and how to do them correctly and safely.
You can start stretching the muscles in the back of your leg by doing the hamstring and calf stretches right away. When you have only a little discomfort in the upper part of your shin, you can do the rest of the exercises.
Hold onto a chair if you need help balancing. This exercise can be made more challenging by standing on a firm pillow or foam mat while you move the leg with tubing.
