A calf strain (pulled or torn calf muscle) occurs when part of the muscles of the lower part of the leg are stretched beyond their ability to withstand tension. This can mostly happen during acceleration or during an abrupt change in direction when a person is running (in motion). Calf strain is a common injury, especially in athletes.
Pain in your calf may result from a direct injury like landing on your knee, or from repetitive movements, such as running on a slanted surface or kneeling down. When the muscle gets overused, it causes the calf to tighten. On that same note, calf tension is rarely experienced alone. There is a really good chance that your hamstrings are tight as well if you have tight calf muscles. This is because of the synergistic relationship of your hamstrings and calves.
