Sports injuries are injuries that typically occur while participating in organized sports, competitions, training sessions, or organized fitness activities. These injuries may occur in teens for a variety of reasons, including improper training, lack of appropriate footwear or safety equipment, and rapid growth during puberty. Often overuse injuries seem less important than acute injuries. You may be tempted to ignore that aching in your wrist or that soreness in your knees, but always remember that just because an injury isn’t dramatic doesn’t mean it’s unimportant or will go away on its own. If left untreated, a chronic injury will probably get worse over time. Learn more about pulled muscles and the ways to treating muscle pull.

To stretch your gastrocnemius calf muscle, place your foot against the wall. Use your hands for support. Your opposite leg can be slightly bent. Imagine a nice straight line through the leg being stretched. This will produce an even tension and stretch, through your leg. This stretch sensation should be light to moderate. Breathe and relax into this, and hold for 45 to 90 seconds. You should now feel a nice release through your gastrocnemius calf muscle.
