As a leading Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist, with over 25 years’ experience managing elite athletes in the AFL, Physioworks Health Group Director David Francis (FACP) recommends awareness in management of the calf muscle to help prevent injury when exercising.

The soleus is a powerful muscle in the back part of your lower leg – the calf – and it is critical to movement when walking or running.

In a series of one minute information videos, now available on Physioworks Health Group TV (You Tube), Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist David Francis discusses the calf, the importance of the soleus and demonstrates simple, practical techniques to help prevent calf injury.

As we come out of the isolation period, with return to sport and increased physical activity; and with summer fast approaching after this long layoff period of less activity, it is very important to manage your return to sport and/or everyday life activity.

Should you have a calf soreness or calf injury please consult your preferred Physioworks Health Group clinic for treatment.
