Tore my calf muscle (soleus I think) about 3 weeks ago and have reinjured it twice. Agreed, I am not to bright to reinjure but little warning from "Great it is healing" to "Not again, I am just walking". How have you healed from a torn calf and how do you know how hard to push it. Also, any beneficial physio techniques / thoughts are welcome. I am pretty sure my tear is a Type II and not a total tear. Significant enought to limp around for a couple of days until the healing process starts. How long does one do RICE? Of course while painful but when to transition back to activity?
