Sports Massage for Healing Painful Calf Muscles
By: Generosa D. Dingal, LMT
Do you have calf pain?
Are you feeling discomfort in the back side of the lower leg, from below the knee to above the ankle? Our calves muscles are made up of muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and blood vessels. Calf pain can arise from a variety of conditions ranging from accidental trauma to nerve conditions. Calf pain in the absence of trauma or other symptoms is commonly due to a muscle cramp, also called a “Charley Horse”. Calf pain may last briefly or be constant. It may affect your entire calf or localized area. Your pain may feel dull and achy, throbbing, piercing, or tingling. Pain- like sensations that are often described as pins and needles, prickling or burning are called paresthesias. Calf pain may be simply irritating and uncomfortable or so debilitating that you can’t put weight on your leg or walk.
However, there are more serious conditions that lead to calf pain, such as peripheral artery disease, deep vein thrombosis (a blood clot in the leg), which is serious and life threatening condition. The blood clot can break loose and cause a pulmonary embolism in the lung, a heart attack, or a stroke. If You are experiencing leg pain swelling, redness, and warmth in the calf, then call the medical doctor for check up. If medical doctor cannot help you, come to see us. We will help you to relieve your pain.
