Pulled Calve Muscle


Hello – I’m a 36 year old male and for the last 6-8 years I have had chronic calve muscle pulls.
I was very athletic growing up with no problems at all. I played all sports. Now, starting in my late 20’s I have this problem.
I really try and stretch well before running (long jogs), playing basketball and tennis etc.
It’s almost a guarantee that I will pull my calve muscle if I try and take it up a notch if that make sense. Any quick hard movement causes a pull.
What do I do?
