2 days ago my wife tripped over the child safety gate. Felt something pull (hot sharp pain) on the back to the outside of leg. Stayed off of it yesterday. This morning, when she tried to walk on leg, the calf muscle tightened up and is making it painful to walk, stand, sit, ....etc.
Still a burning sensation in back of calf


Not hoing to ride HH100 this weekend now


What should she do?

pak rat:

It sounds like your wife pulled a muscle; essentially she tore part of the muscle from its anchor point on the bone. Treatment is RICE, Rest, Ice applications, Compression with an Ace wrap and Elevation to decrease swelling. It can take a couple of weeks and sometimes more depending on the severity and extent of the muscle tear for a pulled muscle to heal. If she has any marked worsening pain, is not feeling any improvement in 1-2 weeks, she should medical attention.

Thanks,
