Welcome! Forums Running Forum Calf Strain Re: Re: Calf Strain



Thanks for all the responses.  I've been running for the better part of 25 years so I've also had a bunch of strains and sprains.  I just got back from a hilly 30 mile bike ride and experienced no pain at all.  I guess I should count my blessings.  Does anyone have any experience with using an electro stim for injuries.  My wife was in a car accident several years ago and part of her therapy was stim on her back.  She kept the machine so I still have it.  Tried to use it yesterday and the battery needs to be replaced by the company (Go figure).  I was going to put it on my calf a couple of times a day to try and get the blood flowing in there.  No harm in that right?  The machine is en-route to Vancouver, Washington to have a new rechargeable battery installed so I won't have it back for a couple of weeks.  So for now I'm just going to have to fall back on RICE.  Thanks again.
