Calf pain & Obesity
Obesity & inactivity can hamper calf muscle function. Our Sports Physio Janhvi Vayada explains how calf muscle pain needs to be identified and managed.

Calf muscle is an anti-gravity muscle and helps in walking/ running/ jogging/ sprinting/static standing posture. 

Skeletal muscle pump: the calf muscle also helps in pumping blood back to the heart through the venous system through the dorsiflexion & plantar flexion movements of the ankle,thereby causing significant calf muscle contraction.

The strength & flexibility of calf muscle plays a vital role to maintain an efficient skeletal muscle pump action.
