Looking for Tight Calf Treatment Suggestions?

No matter what is causing your calves to shorten, you are almost certainly ensuring continuing problems with tight calf muscles if you do not stretch properly or regularly. Tight calf treatment is not complicated but should include gradual, controlled stretching. It is a good idea for everyone to engage in some form of daily stretches for tight calf muscles since our calves are used for so many daily physical activities.  Learn how you can get immediate relief and healing in just two steps.


2 Steps SolutionsYou’re 2 STEPS away from immediate relief & healing!

STEP 1:  IMMEDIATE RELIEFCho-Pat Calf Compression Sleeve

Immediate Relief With Compression

Low-heeled shoes with good arch support and shock absorption are best for tight calf treatment. Look into heel cups and arch supports to make sure that your everyday foot mechanics are operating under the best conditions possible.


A quality calf compression sleeve provides compression forces and supports the lower leg muscles and soft tissue. It helps stimulate circulation and keeps your muscles warm which helps to control the fluid build-up in the muscle.

Designed by medical professionals, the Cho-Pat® Calf Compression Sleeve is anatomically contoured for maximum fit, comfort and effectiveness. It applies gentle compression and support for the lower leg muscles and soft tissue while it promotes circulation and warmth which controls fluid build-up and enhances healing – all of which play a role in tight calf treatment and recovery.


Long-term Healing With Targeted Stretching & Massage


Your calves are very important to the health of your shins. If you have an imbalance in calf muscle strength, it often manifests itself in shin splints or a calf strain. By stretching your calves daily and increasing your calf flexibility, you can dramatically reduce your risk of a muscle imbalance injury like shin splints.

Medi-Dyne’s ProStretch has been proven to provide a deep stretch and strengthening that increases flexibility along the entire lower leg chain of muscles, delivering the long-term flexibility needed for a lasting shin splint treatment and prevention. ProStretch allows you to safely and gradually stretch your leg muscles, putting you in control of the level of stretch.

That’s why ProStretch is the #1 Choice of professional athletes, physical therapists and athletic trainers.

It is also helpful to add strength training to your flexibility exercises. Toe raises and leg presses are a good place to start, but a complete program that targets all four planes of ankle motion and works all of the supporting muscles, is even more effective way to prevent shin splint pain. As always, if you believe you’ve injured your shins or if your shin splints persist, it is always best to be examined by a physician.


Tight Calf Treatment Massage with RangeRollerUsing a massage therapy tool can be helpful in a tight calf treatment plan.


RangeRoller will assist in increasing the flexibility, mobility and functionality of your calf muscles. It will also reduce the pull on your knees, hips and hamstrings and will provide relief to your glutes and lower back.

For tight calf treatment, it is best to use a massage tool horizontally along the length of the back side of your calf from just below the back of your knee down to your heel bone.


Additional Factors For Tight Calf Treatment

Activity Level – If you spend a big part of your day sitting, you need to make sure that you take time every day to stretch out your tight calf muscles. On the other hand, if you are walking a lot each day, you are also likely to experience tight calf muscles and need to make sure you take periodic breaks and stretch your lower legs.

Warm Up and Cool Down – An important aspect of tight calf treatment is to remember to warm up every time you exercise so that muscle fatigue does not combine with tight calf muscles and cause a calf injury. Stretching properly when you finish your work out is also critical in preventing tight calf muscles.

Proper Footwear – Low-heeled shoes with good arch support and shock absorption are best for tight calf treatment. Look into heel wedges and other shoe inserts to make sure that your everyday foot mechanics are operating under the best conditions possible.Tulis Heavy Duty Heel Cups for Sever's Disease Treatment

Heel Support and Orthotics – Every time the heel of your foot hits the ground, a shock wave travels all the way up through your body to your head. Be sure that your shoes are providing adequate shock absorption and that your arches are properly supported. Bio-mechanically engineered inserts and heel cups can be placed in your shoes to correct misalignments or bolster the support of your foot. A product like Tuli’s Heel Cups is a great tool for providing that shock absorption and will help your tight calf treatment and prevention plan be more effective.
