    Default Calf Muscle

    its been a month since I had my right calf injured, I only thought its a simple muscle cramps until I had a hard time using stairs. I apply Kinesio tape for days and still continue to play, I didnt see a doctor,
    then after 3 weeks with less pain from the muscle I went to a gym to enhance or develop the muscle that was weaken by the injury.
    Now, i can move it again normally in and out of court.

    only $22.00 or sometimes they call it muscle tape generally,
    queensway also has...

    how to apply the tape? you need to check it on youtube for the proper application

    I used to get cramps in my calf a lot, and one time had a full on cramp during a game.

    These are the things I find that has helped...

    1. Keep your legs warm ALL the time. I have resorted to wearing full length tracksuit in cold conditions.

    2. Stretch well before play

    3. Keep fluids up - electrolytes seems to help

    4. Eat a banana 20-30mins before play.

    5. Keep fit. I find that the fitter I am, the less cramps I seem to get.

    good advice.

    I was wondering how important stretching afterwards is.

    before stretching prior to playing, its better to do some light warm up exercise. A cold/static stretch could also be more damaging to your muscle and game play.
    Active stretches that mimic the movement of your intended activity, like some deep knee lunges, movements that the pros do before a match..
