Heel Raises


  • Sit on the side of your chair or bed with your feet flat on the floor
  • Hold on to the side of the chair for added support (with your non-fistula arm)
  • Slowly raise your heels off the ground, hold for a few seconds
  • Slowly lower your heels to the ground
  • Repeat 10-15 times


2-4 sets, add ankle weight over time (place weight above knee and not around ankle)


Could do one leg at a time if needed
