Physio For Calf Tear & Calf Strain: The Complete Guide To Calf Pain
The calf complex is made up from many muscles. However, there are two muscles that get a lot of attention. These are the gastrocnemius, and the soleus. These muscles meet at the Achilles tendon and are responsible for horizontal and vertical force production during walking and running.
When it comes to the causes of calf pain, many of our clients suffer from overuse or improper use – usually when they begin a new activity. For some people, getting started on a new exercise regime can be exciting, but when you are using muscles in a new way, mind body dualism is a real thing that can contribute to injury. Meaning you wants you to complete a task be it at a particular speed or for a particular time, but is your body actually ready to do it from a physical conditioning perspective? Seeing a physio for calf strain can be so useful. Our team can help you establish what is causing your symptoms. Is it muscle? is it intramuscular tendon, or maybe is it a neural referral? Seeing a Physiotherapist for calf strain at our clinic can help you understand how you will recover. With our expert support, you can make sure that you do not suffer a recurrence and really know it is conditioned to perform exactly what you want to achieve. Sudden onset of pain could indicate something a bit more serious, but physio for a calf tear can help rehabilitate the problem quickly.
Pain we know can come on for so many reasons. Common presentations we see are Achilles tendinopathy, plantaris tendon hypertrophy, acute muscle strain at the muscle tendon junction, sciatic referral, and in some circumstances we can see calf pain resulting as a secondary condition of a medical condition. Compartment syndrome, where a group of muscles contained in a fascia is under pressure, reducing blood flow and potentially damaging the muscles and nerves, can be helped with exercises and manipulation as suggested by your calf physiotherapist.
