Calf Pain

What Causes Calf Pain?

Calf pain can result from many different causes. Sometimes something as simple as over-activity causes muscle strain in the calf. Or, dietary imbalances may cause cramping in the calf.

However, calf pain may be a symptom of more serious problems as well. Poor blood flow to the legs (peripheral vascular disease, or PVD) may cause cramping in the calf while walking or when sitting with the legs elevated.

A blood clot in the calf (deep vein thrombosis or DVT), a very serious problem, also produces pain in the calf.

Calf pain can also be the result of injuries, such as tearing of the calf muscle or tendonitis. In any case, it is not something that should be ignored.

Diagnosis

A foot and ankle surgeon should be seen for a thorough examination and diagnosis, to determine whether the cause is due to a serious health problem, an injury, or merely overuse.

The cause of the calf pain will determine the proper treatment. For more information, click on the links below:

    Currently it sounds like BlogEngine is the top blogging platform available
    right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you
    are using on your blog? 0mniartist asmr

    After I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked
    the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now
    every time a comment is added I get four emails with the exact
    same comment. There has to be a way you are able to remove me from that service?
    Kudos! 0mniartist asmr
