  • Ice therapy to reduce swelling
  • Ultrasound to promote healing
  • Deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy to relieve muscle tension and stiffness
  • Acupuncture

  • Calf strengthening exercises once pain has settled to get you back to your sporting activities as soon as possible.
  • Hands on treatment such as manipulation or mobilisation is often administered in conjunction with an exercise program to relieve pain and stiffness
