We treated a case of equinus contracture, suffered from compartment syndrome of left lower leg caused by left common iliac artery damage. We compared the change of ankle dorsiflexion angle before and after static stretching (SS) and contract relax (CR). Our rehabilitation showed that both SS and CR resulted in significant improvement of ankle dorsiflexion angle. However, no significant difference was observed between the two methods. Our stretching methods may be one of the treatment means.
