so rest it the heat pack on the injured area 10 minutes on each part? since its kinda wide.




Your calves aren't that wide

If you get a large heat pad, or use a hot water bottle (you have seen those right? They are used as bed-warmers), then you will find resting the back of your lower leg on one of these devices will increase blood flow to the area. The more blood that reaches the injury, the more healing properties reach it.

As for the rest of your body, no reason to sit around doing nothing- follow the guidelines I gave you, and you can work around the injury just fine.

I tried it today, but i when I massaged it the pain slightly felt like it had spread or maybe it was because i massaged it after icing it. I'm doubting the advice or anything its just that well during the two months I've tried so much remedies and it still remained the same. Plus keeping 3 sessions up with it is hard since i got school

1. you massage during the heating, not during the icing.
2. This is not a quick fix. You have injured your body, and then carried on training, further damaging the area. Imagine if you had cut yourself - you would get it stitched and rest the area to let it heal right? Just because you cant see the damage you have done, doesnt make it any different.
What you have done is like tearing open a cut every day preventing it from healing, so over the months, the damage has been pretty bad. Its going to take time to heal, not just a quick rub better and off you go.
3. 3 sessions a day shouldn't be a problem. 1x am before school, 1 x lunchbreak, 1 x before bed. If you cant get access to heat and ice at lunchtime, then take some oil to school and just massage the calve steadlily until it feels really warm, and then do your stretches- better than nothing.

I seriously think you need in person, professional advice on this - sell your playstation, or give up drugs, or rob an old lady, or do some other thing that teenagers do to get cash, and invest it in a session with a registered sports physiotherapist.

Been talking to the track coach at my school, gave me similar advice with the heat and oil but he said stop the icing. He told me that because the icing is used when the injury is fresh and heat is used after to improve blood flow for healing.

Heat on its own is a common treatment post 48-72 hours. Contrast therapy, however, involves vaso dilation and contraction, which can have benefit in 'flushing' the damaged area.

No biggie, and i would not only go with the advice of your coach, but would ask him to oversee how you do it to ensure correct application.

hmm it sounds clever. vaso-dilation and vaso-constriction but how do they really flush out the damage. Well he showed me the soleus stretch in dynamically and regularly. Can I still do push pus although its in the calves and I'm limited with a 5 pound weight which is extremely light now.

they flush out the damage through increasing blood flow to the damaged area with heat (vaso-dilation). The blood brings lymph- white blood cells that heal and repair damaged tissue.
Having done this, the blood at work tends to accrue waste products from the damaged area.

You then force those waste products out of the area quickly with ice (vaso-constriction)- like squeezing a tube of toothpaste.

Keep alternating and the upshot is that you increase healing properties in the area.

As for push ups, normally, I might say yes, but this is a long term, chronic injury, and you cannot afford to put unnecessary strain on it, so no, avoid them.

As for the soleus stretch, do not even think about the dynamic or ballistic versions yet, stick with the static, developmental stretch- hold it for 30-90 seconds, depending on comfort and ability.

Wow that was good advice Cord I understand it so well so well since I've done human and social biology. Guess shadowboxing is out of it too since my legs will move to give power to the punch. I have an ab lounge though but haven't been using it since the part to put my legs when i crunch for long i use to feel the pain in it so i stopped.
