Overstretching calf muscles

Posted by Lori on 8/29/00 at 12:30 (026607)

My calf muscles have not been the same since I was diagnosed with PF. I have been quite faithful to the stretching regime, though from what I've read here I was misguided as to what the best calf stretches are for PF. I've been doing the one with the toe on the wall heel on the ground without the knee bent, and then with bent knee to stretch the lower calf muscle. So I'll have to go a different PT perhaps.

My question is what are the symptoms of overstretched muscles?

Over streched muscles are sore. I find it is very easy to overstrech a muscle. Remember: no bouncing the muscle while streching. Dr. Biehler
