Tom Peters, Associate Physiotherapist from myPhysioSA Payneham, teaches how to loosen your calf muscles by using a foam roller.
Tom demonstrates the best way to use the roller on your calf with key tips on the exact technique that works best.
He uses the calf as his example, but this technique can be applied to all your leg muscles including: hamstring, quadraceps and ITB.
Calf tightness is a common problem for anyone who plays a running sport, goes to the gym or walks. Using a foam roller is a great way to self-massage your calf. You can find the worst muscle knots and concentrate your pressure to these spots, either on the inside of the calf muscles or the outside by the way you lean your weight.
