Strains, which are caused by overstretching or tearing a muscle or tendon, are very common. If you are physically active (especially a runner, athlete, triathlete, gymnast, dancer, or footballer) you will be quite susceptible to strains.
Strains typically consist of an injury in your calf (below the knee, at the back of the leg) or in your feet or ankles and can be very mild or severe.
At Kinetic Podiatry Clinic our goal is to aid fast recovery by reducing your pain and restoring strength. We can also assist you in helping you to prevent future injury. This may include stretching and strengthening exercises, along with our Gait Analysis and possibly the use of Orthotics (bespoke insoles) to correct underlying abnormalities.
