The Right Way to Stretch Your Calf Muscles for Runners
Published on 11/12/13
The foot and ankle are common areas where runners experience pain. Elastic calf muscles can help prevent injuries in these areas by softening the shock at the first point of impact while running.
Elastic calf muscles can also help prevent injuries such as Achilles tendinitis and plantar fasciitis.
Our physiotherapists, chiropractors and registered massage therapists can all perform soft tissue techniques to help loosen your calf muscles and help prevent these types of injuries. This video shows a very easy way to stretch your calf muscles on your own in between treatments.
