Re: torn gastroncemius muscle in calf

I've torn the gastroc in both legs; one complete which was not diagnosed properly...and a partial tear more recently in other leg; Don't use your leg until you can walk heel-toe without pain. Keep it elevated and wrapped from the toes up. Do you notice the blood pooling around your ankle? Good luck!

Unique design guides and centers the glenohumeral joint promoting mobility but inhibiting rotation. Aids in preventing the subluxing shoulder.
