Extensor tendons in foot sublux/snapping over bones. Torn ext. retinaculum no surgeon will replace. Any brace (non AFO) to hold tendons in place?

Eccentric exercises: The best solution for tight hamstrings and achilles are stretching and eccentric exercises. Eccentric exercises load and strengthen muscle as a muscle lengthens versus when it shortens. For the hamstring my favorite is the nordic exercise.
