Calf Strain summary
The calf muscles are those that run down the back of the leg below the knee. If they become too tight, it can result in calf strain.

WHAT IS CALF STRAIN?
There are two muscles in the calf – Gastrocnemius which attaches above and below the knee joint, and Soleus which attaches to the back of the shin. Together these form the achilles tendon. The calf muscles are mainly responsible for pointing your feet and toes away from your body, and become engaged in many movements such as running, walking, walking upstairs and extending onto your tiptoes. A calf strain indicates a tear in one or both of the calf muscles and is a common condition particularly among athletes.
