Calf pain can be caused by a range of different issues, with the most common causes being a muscle strain or Achilles tendinopathy.
The calf muscle is commonly strained due to the complex structure of the muscle itself as well as its involvement in most of the movements you perform in life.
-poor calf flexibility and ankle stiffness
-calf muscle weakness
-inadequate warm up prior to exercise
-poor training methods
-inappropriate footwear during activity.
Quite often, calf pain will occur after beginning a new exercise routine, where the muscle just isn't ready to cope with the new demands that you're asking of it.
In which case, you'll need a specific strengthening and rehab program designed to strengthen the muscle for the activity you're wanting to do.
Recurring calf pain is generally the result of inadequate rehab following a previous injury, and poor biomechanics during movement.
