Calf pain can be a result of tight muscles, torn muscles, cramps, or chronic compartment syndrome (a condition where pressure building up in the muscle interferes with the blood supply).
Calf pain can occur during activity or while at rest. Diagnosing the cause of the pain is dependent on the signs and symptoms and is important when developing a correct treatment plan. In many cases the foot function plays a large part in causing the problem, and therefore, correcting any gait problems or foot issues such as over pronation can often resolve the problem, or at very least remove the cause.
At Prostep Podiatry we can expertly diagnose the cause of your calf pain and create an effective treatment plan for you.
