I suffered a minor calf strain playing indoor cricket yesterday. I iced the muscle for around 4 hours after the injury. It has pulled up stiff and a little sore this morning, although I wouldn't describe it as painful and I can walk, albeit with a bit of a limp.
When the injury occur I 'felt something go' but I doubt it is a full tear, just a strain. My question is how soon is too soon to start gently stretching and restrengthening after an injury like this? I'd like to get back to full fitness as soon as I can, but I don't want to make things worse by going to hard too early.
