Painful Knot In Calf Muscle
I accidentally kicked a chair, which was very painful. However, I noticed my calf muscle is extremely pained as a result. Any correlation?
Physics lesson: Newton's third law of motion states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Interacting objects experience two forces: action and reaction. The direction of the force on the object is opposite to the direction of the force of the second object. So you kick chair. The force of the leg on chair is equal to the force of chair pushing back.

They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more
A charlie horse.....: Large muscles use a lot of energy to do work, and this is supplied by blood. If the supply is not adequate their can be painful spasm; and if metabolites from heavy activity are not removed there can be spasm. Other causes can be a trapped nerve root irritating the muscle. Some people have greater likelihood of spasm due to underlying genetic causes.

7 WKS POST CALF MUSCLE TEAR. YET, I STILL HAVE SAME HARD KNOT THAT APPEARED ON DAY ONE. 3X7cm. LOOKS & FEELS AS IF I HAVE MUSCLE FLEXED 100% OF TIME?
Mis-diagnosis: Your muscle tear is really a fascia tear, and as a result you have a knot in the muscle that is causing pain. The best response will come from treating the trigger point with needling and myofascial release and restoring the fascia injury with platelet rich plasma. www. Blatmanhealthandwellness. Com

I broke my leg this summer and my muscle was bruised. Now I have a few knots in my calf muscle, what could I do to get the knots out?
Varies: It varies somewhat based upon the cause of the knots themselves, but it would not be unusual to have some degree of scar tissue associated with such an injury. Moist heat can increase blood flow to the area, gentle stretching and exercises can help as can various modalities used in physical therapy. Thank you for the question.

When you have neuropathy, you can have parasthesias (tingling, pain) and hyperesthesia (increased sensitivity to a cold floor).See 1 more doctor answer

What r symps of pulled calf muscle? Can it cause painful twitches? Normal? Other symp bump along lateral side of lower leg when I stand, like hernia
Strain: A strained muscle causes soreness and pain on use and takes a week or so to heal. Occasionally bumps in the lateral calf area are due to small herniations of fat tissue through the muscle.
