Calf Pain Exercises
Participating in calf pain exercises is one of the most important things you can do to improve mobility and increase healing and pain relief. If you suffer from any form of calf pain, consult with your physician to find out how much physical activity you can do. After doing so, find a calf pain exercises routine that will benefit you the most.
When doing calf pain exercises, be sure that you protect your calves and ensure that no further injuries will occur. To do this, wear the Cho-Pat® Calf Compression Sleeve while you work out. It will provide you with the compression necessary to reinforce the area, warm the area, and improve the circulation of the lower leg. After your calf pain stretches and exercises, massage the area with the RangeRoller Pro™ in order to feel the most pain relief possible.
Calf Pain Stretches
There are some calf pain stretches that are recommended by Medi-Dyne for lower leg and calf pain. They include:
- ProStretch Plus™ – Facing the wall, and at an arms-length away from it, put your arms straight out in front of you and place your hands on the wall for balance. Put one of your feet into the ProStretch Plus™ in the proper manner. Lean towards the wall with your body, but push back with your heel that is in the ProStretch Plus™. You will feel a deep stretch along the back of the calf muscle.
- StretchRite® – Lay on your back with the soles of your feet on the floor and your knees bent. Slowly raise one foot up into the air, with the toes pointed towards your head, and the knee slightly bent. Wrap the StretchRite® around the sole of the foot and pull down gently on the handles.
