Lower calf pain
Pain in the lower part of the calf muscle can be from a strain or tear higher up and the swelling tracks down, usually where it joins the achilles tendon (musculotendon junction). Deeper in the leg where the soleus muscles is also a point of lower calf pain.
The musculotendonous junction can also become injured from a tear or strain and is a frequent site for injuries such as these. An Achilles rupture can also be at the site of this junction between the tendon and muscle and will have pain in the lower calf. Injuries with this symptom are listed below:
