Torn Calf Muscle

Wrome posted:
Hello,

Last week 5-14, I was playing basketball, as I was cutting to the basket I felt as if someone hit a line drive (baseball) right at my calf. I RICED my calf for the first week and I can walk but I still feel some discomfort. Should I consider getting an MRI? I have strained my calf before, but never torn. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Wil

Remember to replace your running shoes every 300-400- miles or every 6 months. Many running related injuries are due to worn out footwear. More
