Posts for tag: calf injury
Kevin Durant has been said to be the best basketball player right now and he just got injured last night. It doesn’t look serious, but an MRI is scheduled.
He suffered a non-contact injury after a baseline jumper over Houston’s Iman Shumpert. After the make he started running down the court and immediately felt pain. Durant’s own bench thought he may have suffered an Achilles’ tear that would have sidelined him for months.
Because of the history of Achilles tendon tear an MRI would be the next step.
A lot of the times a calf strain can be also a tear of a small muscle in the back of the leg called Plantaris. It is treated with rest and immobilization. We treat both injuries surgically and non-surgically.
