Muscle strain of the calf

Calf muscle strained? With a heavy load it is possible for a muscle to stretch or tear (whiplash). A strain can be very annoying. Read here what you can do yourself!

What is a calf muscle strain?

When the calf muscle is strained, the muscle is stretched so far that it just does not tear. If a lot of force and load is exerted on the muscle, for example during explosive movements such as tennis , football , hockey, etc., it is possible to sustain a strain on the muscle.

Cause of a strained calf muscle

The most common calf muscle strain is during exercise. The muscles may not be warm enough after a warm up. It is also possible that the muscle is exerted in one too much load, or that the muscle is tired or overloaded.
