Calf Strain Copy

Did you pull/ strain/ tear your calf? Is the pain not going away?

Calf strains (light bulb moment: muscle strain =muscle tear) are a debilitating injury that can stop athletes and runners participating in sport for days, weeks and even months.

Green et al in 2020 found that 51% of calf tears affect the region where the muscle meets the tendon. This junction allows the calf to generate massive force, approximately 12 times your body weight whenyou’re running. If this is involved in an injury it has the potential to add an additional week onto your recovery time and increase your chance of re-injury without specifically focused rehab.
