Tight calves hurt! Foot and calf pain - the worst. Who’s with me? I don’t know about you, but I’m frustrated. We have running to do. Wearing high heels can be painful on the legs (so I hear). Fighting is hard enough, why battle unnecessary tightness? What about working in an environment where we need to stand all day? Ouch!
Your solution is in the quick video below. RAD Director of Education, Kevin Hendry, demonstrates just how easy it is to take care of tight calves and increase ankle mobility. No joke, doing the exercises in this video will keep your calves happy for years. This stuff works!
Let’s break down the steps from the video:
Are you thinking what I’m thinking? I already have enough to do during the day than attend to a tight calf. I mean, it’s not a big deal, right? When it hurts I can get a massage or dig in with a tennis ball and hope the pain or tightness doesn’t come back?
Here’s the thing - change causes change. If you've had tight calves for a while and you keep doing the same thing to solve the problem, why would anything change? Furthermore, restriction in our calves can wreak havoc on our feet, ankles, hips, lower back, and even shoulders and neck! Crazy, right? So what to do? Change the process, so we arrive at a different outcome. A successful one!
