YANMD filter: Why does my heel burn/pull when I stretch it?
posted by kookywon to Health & Fitness (5 answers total)
This August I started running again. I noticed that I had a sore back and oddly this problem that has persisted. Whenever I straighten out my leg and pull up my toes I get a pulling/burning/stretching pain on my heel. I also feel it when I stretch my calf this way
I went to a masseuse who said that my glutes were extremely tight and I really needed to start stretching them daily and get more massages.
I've since been stretching both my glutes (this way
) and my calfs twice a day, but if anything it seems to feel worse.
Does anyone have an idea what is causing this? Are there additional stretches I need to be doing?
