Foot Care Tip! Stretching is work, and who likes work, right? Here are two suggestions to make stretching easier. First, take a serrated knife and cut the Calf Stretching Block into two six-inch-by-six-inch blocks. Although you only can stretch one foot at a time now with the modified block, you can stretch in more than one place. Second, place the stretching blocks in places where you linger. Put a stretching block by the phone or in front of the television. Stretch while you're doing your make-up or brushing your teeth. Who said calf stretching had to be work?
