Overview

Calf self-myofascial release (SMR) is a self-administered soft-tissue treatment for the lower body, usually using a foam roller, lacrosse ball, or other 'trigger point' massage tool. By applying pressure strategically to the calf muscles of the lower leg, some people find they can cause this often painful and tight muscle to relax or 'release.' Calf SMR is often accompanied by SMR on the quadriceps muscles, or by stretches that target the calves.
