Foam Rolling – Calves

DSC02049 (2)Foam rolling the lateral gastrocnemius (a calf muscle) can correct common knee impairment.  Take a little time to address your calves when foam rolling.   

Place foam roller under the mid-calf. Cross the opposite leg over the top of the other to increase pressure. Slowly roll calf area to find the most tender spot. Hold that spot for 30-90 seconds until the discomfort is reduced. Especially beneficial for runners or those who regularly wear shoes with elevated heels (8). Switch legs and repeat.
