Probably a bit of scar tissue still there. I had a right calf tear last year as well. Seems ok now. I got dry needling and was hooked up to machine which sent electric impulses into the calf. Also deep tissue massage. I generally avoid physios and go to physical therapists instead. More hands on and has worked for me over the years.
Cheers man. I’ll give that a go.
Make an appointment to see paddy leahy in lasercentre. Sounds like a build up of scare tissue. Deep tissue only goes so far, laser will have it as good as new.
Have you tried sticking your thumb up your hole?
So long as it doesn’t need feeding
Stay on top of it with foam rolling after treatment.
Good suggestion that cheers man
I wouldn’t suggest foam rolling on that for a while.
Get well soon, mate.
I called to @backinatracksuit s door. Thought I could convince him to vote No In the 8th . He invited me in for tea, and then the wife and kids jumped me.
Is the foam roller any good for lower back pain? I’ve had an issue with it for a few years now, flares up on average once a year leaving me stopped for a couple of days, since I took up running it’s given me a little bit of trouble, the pain is more of a minor nuisance but I’d like to help it, physio didn’t do much, I do very occasional yoga for people with back issues
Wouldn’t touch the lower back with a foam roller. Try rolling the glutes and hamstring and they can free things up a bit. Google pelvic tilt also. Common enough and can give lower back issues.
Unless you’re trail running or on grass I’d keep the distances low. Not sure running is a great exercise for lads to take up in their 40s
Do a few sprints on the pitches in Mary I rather than jogging at walking pace prying on travellers.
