| Calf Pain Best Seller - Dr Foot's Sport Insoles (pair) |
Most runners experience calf pain in the soleus muscle. The soleus muscle is the smaller muscle in the calf, which runs between the two heads of the big calf muscle (gastrocnemeus). It often takes more pressure than the larger muscle because it acts first when you use your calf muscles. This injury can occur due to a sudden increase in activity, inadequate stretching or warming up.
To help the pain, ice the area immediately after running. We recommend our Vulkan Reusable Ice Pack for focused pain relief.
Controlling foot function and preventing over pronation (rolling in of the foot) can alleviate symptoms and prevent a reoccurrence of the calf pain. Insoles are essential in restoring structural and functional balance as you stand, walk, or run in order to stop calf pain.
The contoured shape of the Dr Foot Sports Insoles supports your feet in two directions, both lengthwise and across the arch, for maximum relief of pain and fatigue. The special poron heel cushion built into the insole helps to reduce shock absorption.
Dr Foot Sport Insoles are engineered to combat over pronation and provide greater stability and maximum support. Ideal for patients seeking arch support for prevention and treatment of calf pain.

| Calf Support |
Slip on effective relief for aching calf muscles
Here's an effective treatment for painful, cramping or strained calf muscle. This calf support maintains beneficial warmth to your lower leg, enhancing circulation and diminishing calf pain. The increase in muscle temperature makes the muscle more extensibility and therefore less likely to pull. The calf support also improves muscle function and speeds up healing if an injury has occurred.
The support is manufactured using Neo-Tex, which maintains the bodies warmth and gives excellent compressive support to the soft tissues.
This lightweight support is ideal for runners seeking calf support to treat calf pain and prevent future occurrences of the condition.
