grade 2 calf tear

Recommended Posts

squatted a pb with very tight wraps.

calf swelled up over the next 48 hours. got to 10/10 pain felt like it was gonna pop.

went to ER, they did an ultrasound to rule out DVT etc, nothing, but grade 2 medial gastroc tear (calf tear) 

no surgery needed. rest for 10 days. physio after 10 days. no squats 4-5 weeks.

 

I'm going to run bpc-157 and tb500 to promote healing.

 

anything else anyone recommends?

How the hell do wraps tear a calf. Maybe caused by all the gear u running. Somehow 

Wraps pull the tendons on the back of the leg pretty tight. Considering people tear calves running it's not that surprising.

its not that rare. if you dont understand how that'd happen you aren't wrapping tight enough
