Another great video, Jill. I love using a tennis ball on to massage my feet. Question about massaging the calf: I recently ripped a muscle in my calf and am experiencing pain when I jog (so I’m doing more walking). Is the calf massage on the foam roller helpful for a torn muscle or will it aggravate it more?



    Thank you, Denise. I am sorry to hear about your injury. I know how much running is a part of your livelihood and fitness routine. Hang in there!

    Great question about foam rolling on an injury. Foam rolling on your injured calf muscle will be too aggressive. It can cause more inflammation to the injured area. While bringing circulation to the area via massage from a professional or gentle self-massage with your hands can be healing, you don’t want to tear more muscle fibers in the process. This is true for any injury.

    I suggest RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression or gentle self-massage, Elevation). If you do not notice improvement in a few weeks, see a physical therapist.

    Best of luck, Denise. I always appreciate your comments & questions.
