How Did You Strain Your Calf Muscle?
I was skipping through the hall in my home and when i came down on my left foot on the third or fourth skip I felt and heard a pop from my calf and was in instant pain. Had to yell for my mother because I was just teetering on one foot, she brought me her walker and we went to the ER.
Describe Your Calf Strain Rehab Experience
I saw my doctor as well as the doctor at the ER. All they basically did was give me pills crutches and told me to ice it and keep it elevated. I stayed on crutches and the walker for about a month. Took me that long to be able to ut my foot flat on the ground and walk without almost collapsing.
- Elevate it
- Ice it
- 800mg ibuprofen
- prop it up when you sleep
- don't try to walk/ exercise on it until its FULLY healed
- wrap it
How Long Did It Take to Heal?
I don't think its fully healed as I still have issues with it. injured it in july and its now april.
