If you’re a big fan of wearing high heels on a constant occasion then you already know the associated pain that comes along with it. Nobody is immune to the stress that heels put on your legs, not even the most experienced wearer. If you’re battling the after pains of high heel shoe wear then it’s time to engage in these fantastic leg stretches that will have you feeling at ease once again.
The first stretch will be the downward dog calf stretch. If you’re familiar with yoga, then the downward dog position should be a familiar stretch, if not then what you’ll want to do is place your hands and feet flat onto your mat and raise your backside toward the sky. Begin by bending your right knee and then placing your weight onto your left heel. Hold the position for a good 15 seconds and then switch over onto the other side and repeat.
The next stretch is the wall stretch. For this position, stand roughly two feet in front of any wall in your house. Then, place your hands onto the wall in front of your shoulders. Walk your hands slowly down the length of the wall and lean back into your body, lifting up your toes and keeping your weight onto the heels of your feet. Continue stretching by walking your hands down as comfortable as you can without hurting yourself. Hold the pose for 15 seconds and really allow yourself to feel a deep stretch in your calves.
