Just had a session to day with an expensive physio regarding pain in my left calf during runs which they diagnosed very tight calf muscles from previous injuries ex Army so plenty of them . As I'm sure you know Elbows Out , he re educated the importance of stretching twice a day everyday slowly and massaging my Achilles heel with tiger balm .
My pain started on the outside of my calf going very stiff and very tight resulting sharp stabbing pain at the back of the calf .
Lol just what I thought . Seen physio today and they feel my calfs are to tight from previous injurys , so plenty of TLC from them weekly and lots of stretching and no running for the moment but can do bike/ cross trainer etc which is disappointing .Hopefully only a few weeks not a fan of these cardio .
Hi , I've recently started to train again after a long lay off due to work commitments , about 3 months ago I pulled my left calf muscle playing rugby which resulted in severe pain and swelling in my ankle I completely rested until I felt recovered . My problem now is I'm doing light work on the treadmill and my left leg just feels like its going to give way no pain just feels like I'm about to fall off the treadmill lol ,my calf feels fine tho apart from being tight . Any thoughts please
