Calf Pulls

Calf pulls are a strain to one of the muscles of the calf. They can occur anywhere, from behind the knee to the base of the achilles tendon. This condition is usually the result of running, jumping, or climbing hills.

Doctor's Treatment Plan
Treatment consists of reducing any swelling, and muscle soreness. This is immediately followed by a series of stretching exercises to allow the calf muscles to relax. There is a progression to strengthening exercises in order to avoid future injury.

  Note: It should always be considered that not all injuries are spinal related, and therefore not all injuries can be fully corrected with the benefit of chiropractic medicine. Further, the injury profiles and recommendations for treatment should in no way be used as a substitute for the care of a physician.
