Supportive for prevention and pain relief
Do you have pain in your calves and want to loosen the calf muscles or loosen your hardened calves?
We will show you exercises to massage and relax your calf and improve mobility and strength in your ankles.
Do the exercises three to five times a week. If you don’t have time to do all of the exercises, choose one exercise for each area.
You can do the activation and strengthening exercises separately as a preventive measure.
Do you have hardened muscles or fascia in your calves? Then massaging your calves can help relieve the tension. If you want to work on the area holistically, you should also roll out the sole of your foot.
Sit with your legs extended and place your calf on the BLACKROLL® or the TWIN so that it is in the middle of your lower leg.
Stand in a relaxed position or sit on a chair. Place a MINI under the sole of your foot. Apply as much pressure as you can tolerate and slowly move your foot back and forth on the roll.
After the myofascial self-massage, you can trigger your deep-lying fascial adhesions with the BLACKROLL® by TMX TRIGGER. You can relieve deep tension with the acupressure technique. Find the point in your calf area that hurts the most.
Sit on the floor with your legs extended, place the trigger on the floor, and place your calf on the trigger. Find the point that hurts the most. Stay in that position until the pain subsides slightly.
Once the tension is released, round off the relaxation process with targeted stretching exercises. You should continue to stretch with the myofascial techniques.
Stand in a walking position in front of a wall and support yourself with your hands. Make sure that the entire sole of the back leg to be stretched is completely on the floor and the knee joint is extended.
Sit on the floor with your legs extended and place a SUPER BAND around the tip of one foot. Now actively move your ankle so that the tip of your foot alternately points toward and away from you.
The activation and strengthening exercises are not part of the direct treatment of pain, but they can prevent calf problems. Weak leg muscles are often the main cause of calf problems. You should therefore perform specific exercises to strengthen your calves and leg muscles.
Stand in a walking position with the back leg on a BLACKROLL® and shift most of your body weight onto the front leg. Do single-leg knee squats. Your rear knee joint should move perpendicular to the floor.
