Calf Strain (Gastrocnemius and Soleus strain)

Calf muscle ( the Gastrocnemius and Soleus) strains usually occur during acceleration or changes in direction such as a change of running speed. However, there is a small percentage of the populations who can tear their calf muscle by simply walking.  

To address plantar fasciitis, use the BioZoom, BioPad, and Bliss to breakup these adhesions, increase blood supply and increase range of motion.  Using the Following protocol(s) Dr. Mike has developed, you can guide yourself through pain and return to sport and play.     

Use the BioZoom to breakup adhesion. Watch the following videos below and follow Dr. Mike's outlined protocols

Gastrocnemius
Attachment: Mr. Torch
Treatment Time: 10-20 passes- covering the Gastrocnemius

Soleus
Attachment: Mr. Torch
Treatment Time: 10-20 passes- covering the Soleus

Achilles Tendon
Attachment: Mr. Torch or Ms. Fascia
Treatment Time: 10-20 passes- covering the Achilles Tendon

After you have elongated the muscle and fascia of the calf and Achilles Tendon, the BioPad can be placed on the calf as follows:  

Place Bio Pad vertical to cover more surface area, in approximately 2 inches below the back of the knee, and other pad on the mid belly of the calf.  Increase intensity to where its slightly uncomfortible and run BioPad for one cycle of 20 mins.  

Finish with the Addaday Bliss for 20-30 minutes to relax and massage the calf, Achilles Tendon and ankle.
