Towel stretch.. Hold for 30 seconds, release, hold for 30 seconds, release, hold for 30 seconds. Make it hurt, and hold it. You want to feel it in your hamstring and calf.
Toe Stretch. Same thing. Hold it for 30 seconds, release. Do it three times. .

They show they guy doing the towel stretch in heavy shoes? Really?
Yea, that's a bad example in retrospect. I do it barefooted so I can really tweak the toes.
If the problem requires stretching you should try yoga. I just to have a lot of ankle pain and flexibility issues with my right foot which lead me to physical therapy which worked so so. Started doing yoga afterward and it completely knocked out all the problems I had in the past.
I too, have this. I got a pair of shoes that had no arch support whatsoever for walking the dog in wet conditions. It's in my left leg and I do notice that I'm compensating with my right side. I do the towel exercises and also the toe stretch like Stadium-Armory posted in #17. And I'm getting arch supports for every pair of shoes I wear regularly.
And man, it does hurt like crazy!
Stretch Baby! Stretch! I sit in front of the TV and stretch with a towel for about an hour ever night. Also Dr Shoalls makes a planter Facitus instert that you should be able to get at any store, any they help me. I get mine at Publix
"Washington strolled to the NFC championship, outscoring their two playoff opponents by a combined total of 48 points. Their domination was more than impressive, it was historic. The 1991 Redskins boasted the largest average margin of victory among all Super Bowl champions."
