I am a dancer and I have got lots of classes and rehearsals at the moment and from last sunday I've got this weird pain on my calf ( at the outside, lower calf) and it hurts to walk as well. I really dont think i pull the muscle.... it hurts to touch as well.
My friend told me epsom salt helps and I tried but it doesnt really work for me. What should I do ??
You may have pulled the lateral calf muscle. Try gently stretching the calf. To hit the lat calf more turn you foot in and stretch (like your pigeon toed). The opposite works to stretch the medial calf - turn your foot out and stretch.
I would also try ice on it to relax the muscle and reduce any inflammation. If it's been a couple days you can try heat too which may help.
