Recurrent calf strains are a runner’s nightmare! They can be caused by a number of different factors. Nothing is more frustrating than heading out for your usual 5km stress busting run to be pulled up lame with stabbing pain in the calf muscles. This can really add stress to your day and if it isn’t treated properly the first time, it has a high chance of occurring again. Another contributor to recurring strains is feet and legs not being in the correct position. Remember things work best when they are in the right place.
