How to recover most quickly from damaged calf muscle
I have hurt my calf muscle a bit. I tried to run to cross the road and it felt like someone had hit the back of my calf muscle with a stone. It isn't bad, I can walk normally after a couple of days. I think it is slightly torn. My question is how to treat it for the best. My idea is after a couple of days to use hot flannels and very gentle stretches (gentle means only the slightest feeling in the muscle). I don't want to leave it for weeks because I have heard that it is a lot harder for the repaired muscle to get its stretchiness back. Any ideas from people would be very gratefully received.
