Calf Strains are treated at Solihull Sports Injury Clinic in the West Midlands and are common in athletes who run. Sports such as football, rugby, babminton, basketball, tennis and squash can also throw up their fair share of calf strains.
Jumping activities such as dancing or gymnastics can create huge stresses on the calfs and a muscle strain can occur.
