Muscle strain/tightness OR muscle release - which treatment
You say that if you have a slight strain or tightness in the gastrocnemius muscle,the RICE procedures should work well. You should NOT perform foam roller exercises until the pain is almost gone, or you could re-injure your muscle or tendon.
But how do you know if you have a slight strain/tightness and to apply RICE OR if the sore spot is just a muscle that needs released by foam rolling?
