In this video, you will learn how to do a isometric calf raise by Dr. Brian Damhoff.
1. Start by going up on your toes and then holding at the top position
2. You can hold at the top for 45 seconds then take a 2 minute break and repeat up to 5 sets 2x daily
3. Load appropriately by either doing them single-leg or wearing a backpack with weight
If you have an insertional Achilles tendinopathy, meaning the pain is closer to the bottom of your Achilles, then holding at the top position could actually aggravate the issue. Instead, you can hold at about 50-75%
