Sore Calves Treatment

How Sore Calves Occur

Sore, Tight calves can occur for numerous reasons – from participating in a strenuous exercise to walking for a prolonged period. Although sore calves are not considered a serious medical condition, if left untreated, they are likely to cause great discomfort that can prevent you from normal everyday functioning. What is more, the pain can extend to your knees, feet, and ankles, which leads to pain – sometimes even injury.

Here at South Coast Sports Podiatry, we are certified specialists with years of experience treating professional, recreational athletes and non-athletes who struggle with tight calves. We utilise our rich knowledge and skills to define the best treatment for your specific case so that you could restore your full flexibility as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Causes and symptoms of sore and tight calves

The calf consists of two muscles that we place huge stress on daily. If they start to feel sore and tight, chances are that you have overused them during an endurance training, running, or even just walking.

However, they can be a result of an underlying condition such as:

  • Injury and muscle tear
  • Dehydration
  • Dietary imbalances
  • Poor circulation
  • PVD (peripheral vascular disease)
  • DVT (deep vein thrombosis)

For this reason, we here at South Coast Sports Podiatry advise you to turn to us in case you are struggling with calf-related discomfort for a prolonged period. We are at your disposal if you:

  • Experience a sudden, severe pain
  • Notice bruising and swelling in the area
  • Have trouble standing on your tiptoes
