Yes. You can do this with or without the big rubber band thingy. Dangle your feet from chair, bed or whatever (I'm short so dangling is and every day occurrence). Spell the alphabet with your toes using your ankles for movement. Also do circles right and left and stretch/point toes away from you and then pull them back. Lots of that kind of stuff to loosen things up. You can do some leaning stretches that pull the hamstring that are helpful. Look them up on-line if you need a diagram. I think you will find something that helps.
