Causes And Ways To Treat Pain In The Back Of The Calf?
, I recently had a sudden pain in my calf when I got up from squatting or getting up to stand up and the pain was in the back of my calf which made me unable to stand for a while I want to know what is the cause and how do I fix it?
Your complaint about a sudden pain in the back of the calf when getting up from a squatting position is often experienced by some athletes who change their leg position suddenly without even cooling down beforehand. Pain in your calves, known as muscle pain or myalgia, occurs due to forcing the muscles to move more quickly and excessively.
Conditions like that often happen, so I suggest you when you squat and will get up, don't do it suddenly, you should straighten your legs one by one and then get up.
Usually the pain will go away on its own but it will take time. However, if the complaint does not disappear within a few days, it is necessary to pay attention to several possible diseases such as dermatomyositis, fibromyalgia, infection. If that's the case, I suggest you to immediately consult an orthopedic specialist.
Some things you can do at home, such as:
- cold compress on the painful area
- gentle massage
- rest the painful area
If necessary, take painkillers such as paracetamol
- enough rest
- When doing sports, you should warm up and cool down
That's my explanation. Hopefully useful and a speedy recovery. Thank you
