Our ‘cutting edge’ massage techniques aim to clean out all forms of adhesion, tension, and pain from your calves. Watch the above video to get a little taste of exactly how our massage can clean your calf! Chronic calf dysfunction is usually due to two issues:
- POOR MOVEMENT BIOMECHANICS
- SCARRING and ADHESION RELATING TO PREVIOUS INJURY
Poor posture and movement mechanics can cause the calves to overwork as they try to pick up the slack of under-active muscles such as the Glutes, Hamstrings and Plantar Fascia. In addition to this, when the calf suffers reoccurring injury and it mistreated – scarring and adhesive connective tissue within the calf can build up which significantly increases the chance of re-injury.
It is very important to deal with calf issues ASAP once injured, as our massage techniques can speed up the recovery process, and ensure that re-injury does not occur.
Sometimes, other muscles surrounding the lower leg can be causing the calf to become injured. Watch the below video to see how treating the shin can not only improve shin splint pain, but also improve the calf.
