The effect of adding plantar flexors isometric exercise on calf circumference in patient with post open reduction internal fixation non-articular tibia fracture

<p><strong>Background: </strong>Post-operative non-articular tibia fracture some problems that often occur include pain, muscles atrophy, muscles weakness, and joint stiffness that makes patients limited in their daily activities. Several factors that play a role in muscles atrophy...
