Active stretching is a method that involves holding stretches for short durations. This type of stretching is ideal when you are rehabilitating an injury. It also improves flexibility when the muscles are tight. To perform an active Achilles stretch;

1.        Sit on any surface with your legs straight in front of you.

2.        Pull your toes toward you until you feel a stretch in the Achilles tendon along the back of the bottom of your calf.

3.        Hold this stretch for five seconds and then relax your toes forward.

4.        Stretch only to the point where you feel a light tension. If you experience pain, ease back on the stretch.
