|Subject: ||RE: CHRONIC CALF spasm/strain injury|
Wow, quite a story, thanks. Chronic muscle tears...yes, this could be the case, and if it is then I need to find the root cause. My best guess for what is happening is that my tibialis posterior (a little muscle that runs down the back of the leg) was originally injured--a muscle tear caused by a cramp. In response, the posterial tibialis muscle has tightened over time. I think that it is so tight that it is taking much of the work load meant for the stronger calf muscles (soleus & gastroc) and it is being chronicall re-injured.
Thanks for the replies, please keep them coming.
