If you are someone who experiences knee, low back, and/or shoulder pain, you probably have tight calves. Many times the site of our pain is not usually the source of it. If someone is dealing with tight calves, any movement their body is asking it do is therefore going to compensate because their calves can’t move properly. This usually results in an overuse injury.
