Alternative Exercise Suggestions for Patients with an ICD
- This stretch is challenging without foot ware as the toes may bend and become uncomfortable, while decreasing the stretch at the ankle. Try the stretch in running shoes.
- Ensure your heel is close enough to the wall to encourage an optimal calf stretch.
