Testing Calf Strength


Take this functional test to check for imbalances or weakness in your calf muscles. Weak or unbalanced calf muscles can be a contributing factor in numerous lower extremity conditions, including Plantar Fasciitis. Strong Calf muscles are cricial in the support of your lower body's kinetic chain. Your Calf muscles (Gastrocnemius and Soleus) bring your heel up (induce plantar flexion) and stabilize your ankle in a transverse plane.
