  3. Metodi Georgieff says: August 2nd, 2022 at 6:20 am

    Hi πŸ™‚ I have L5 – s1 herniated disc and surgery on 9th of June 2021. The low back and sciatica pain has gone away, however I feel my right calf very weak… I am a semi pro runner and I would like to get back on track as soon as possible. I would be glad to hear any specific advice from you 😊 Thank you in advance

  4. Nana Silvas says: August 2nd, 2022 at 6:22 am

    Okay I will start doing that… can you please tell me how I can get rid of this horrible bruise on my leg? Any advice on that.

  5. Jake Hesson says: August 2nd, 2022 at 6:23 am

    How long should we walk for?

  6. Nana Silvas says: August 2nd, 2022 at 6:29 am

    No ma’am but I did go to the emergency and an assistant that works with the doctor told me I tore something in my calf…the day of the game I was on 1st base and right when I was about to run I felt like a sharp rock was thrown at my leg

  7. jorge Martin says: August 2nd, 2022 at 6:30 am

    hi I pulled muscles on both legs my legs r weak for about four months now I’m doing exercises but the don’t really help I been having like vibrating on my muscles is that a good sign that I will get better soon thanks

  8. roberto savini says: August 2nd, 2022 at 6:33 am

    thanks, you are so kind to me! my injury is quite old, 6 months from now, et it’s probably not perfectly healed, in particular as a matter of sensory proprioception of the foot. thanks for your link, so useful.

  9. Nana Silvas says: August 2nd, 2022 at 6:34 am

    The emergency was like last week!

  10. Muhammad Mudassar says: August 2nd, 2022 at 6:35 am

    hey madam. madam what are the impacts of these exercises on knees

  11. the_dreidreamer says: August 2nd, 2022 at 6:37 am

    I got my leg cast off 2 weeks ago (dislocated and fractured patella) and my calf is as thin as the first day :/

  12. Thanks for a great vid. I just found out I’ve been doing calf stretches wrong: leaning against a wall instead of straight up.

  13. Kamila Sn says: August 2nd, 2022 at 6:38 am

    I can’t do the exercises for calves at the gym because they’re tooo weak. So I’ll do this at home to strengthen them before I lift weight

  14. Sharon Mitchel says: August 2nd, 2022 at 6:38 am

  19. Hi Dr Jo! Nice videos! (Clemson fan)πŸ…. 60 yo playing soccer 2-3x week. Acute calf strain. Ice and rest. Minimal pain with normal walking and pushing a load. I’m less than -1week out. When can I resume full sport activity and any other preventative advice… ( similar injury on opposite side recovered quickly, approx 1 week)

  27. Ron Reagan says: August 2nd, 2022 at 6:56 am

    I have anterior tibialis tendonitis, ( possible minor tear,) are these calf exercises harmless for me?

  28. jorge Martin says: August 2nd, 2022 at 6:58 am

    I’m in therapy now but I don’t feel any difference .

  29. Yogesh Rao says: August 2nd, 2022 at 6:58 am

    Dr.Jo, I am a runner and struggle with calf pain on and off. I also am unable to do these stretching and strengthening exercises every day. How often would you recommend that I run and stretch/strengthen?

  30. Diego Fonseca says: August 2nd, 2022 at 7:00 am

    How many times a week should I do the exercise?

  31. Becky Boom123 says: August 2nd, 2022 at 7:00 am

    I have Lupus, Fibromyalgia and Rhumatoid Arthritis. I also have Depression. I have stopped walking for about 2 months. The back of my calves have severe spasms when I try to walk now πŸ˜” I can’t even walk a block anymore. Doing this killed the top of my foot the most. It was a good burn tho. Thank you!

  32. Can you do calf raises on both toes every day? In early stages of rehab after non weight bearing? Or should I put a day or two in between?

  33. Lee Turnbull says: August 2nd, 2022 at 7:01 am

    Thanks Jo. Always very informative. You haven’t got chicken legs there lover lay 😜

  34. Rhianne Angel says: August 2nd, 2022 at 7:02 am

    Hi I’m angel I’m 11 yrs old and I have this calf pain in 2 days now my parents kinda doesn’t care but I think I’m going to feel better now when I do this! I’ll try and do these exercises!!😊😊

  35. ANGEL MARTINEZ says: August 2nd, 2022 at 7:02 am

    Can this be done everyday ?

  36. nomedthegreat says: August 2nd, 2022 at 7:07 am

    Never commented on a youtube before. Don’t know why I’m showing up as NOMEDXXX. Anyway, I wish I had "chicken legs". I have big burly calves even though I am 5′ 7" and 140 pounds. I was actually looking for a video on stretching calves, but I’m wondering if your strengthening exercises are stretching exercises in one.

  37. Matthew Davis says: August 2nd, 2022 at 7:08 am

    I am physically unable to move my feet or stand on my toes. Cannot do the motion to do a calf raise at all. Is there any other exercise to strengthen the calf muscles?

  38. roberto savini says: August 2nd, 2022 at 7:09 am

    hi doctor jo! first of all congratulations on your great videos, very useful! this one is really helpful, so thanks! I’d like to ask if you advise to use trainers like you or to perform in bare feet in the case, like mine, in which you have to recover strenght and proprioception from a severely sprained ankle some months ago. The recovery is ok, yet the strenght is not on top πŸ™‚ some time ago I asked you for a similar topic, some advice to strenghten the sole and toes muscles and the proprioception as well, after an injury. what do you advise? there is a specific video on that? great job!!

  39. Randy Zeitman says: August 2nd, 2022 at 7:09 am

    Really outstanding. Going on my toes made rehab fast and got me walking today very well. This is really what YouTube is about… The very best offering selfless help to the public.

  40. Nana Silvas says: August 2nd, 2022 at 7:10 am

    Thank you just an update your stretches have helped me just need to get the feel of walking normal again if that makes sense… I’ve been so use to limping that it still scares me to walk normal.. but I’m better than yesterday

  41. Nana Silvas says: August 2nd, 2022 at 7:13 am

    Hi Dr. Jo I need some advice I play kickball but I recently injured myself… long story short I tore a muscle somewhere in my calf it’s purple and it’s bruised..i ice it and wrap it I also puT icy hot and i really want to strengthen it..can you please give me advice on this I really am tired of this lol!!:/

  42. Peter Clancy says: August 2nd, 2022 at 7:13 am

  43. jorge Martin says: August 2nd, 2022 at 7:15 am
