Calf pain

This is a guess as a therapist about calf pain.


There is a high possibility that the range of motion of flexion and extension of the hip joint is narrow.

(especially extension)


・Mechanism of the body

In order of muscle strength: hip joint → knee joint → ankle joint

Easy-to-use order: Ankle joint → Knee joint → Hip joint


Why do calves hurt?


The hip joint has large muscles and produces a large amount of force, but it also consumes a large amount of energy.

Therefore, there is a possibility that the calf of the ankle joint, which consumes less energy, is overused.



① Stretching to expand the range of motion of the hip joint

②Be aware of using the hip joint every day

③Stretching from toes to soles and calves
