Hey guys, I have this symptom, When I play footy for long periods 2-4 hrs, when I finish playing, My right foot has limited movement! I cannot lift my foot upwards. Its like the muscles in my lower leg won't work! Any suggestions what this could be?

does your calf feel tight, or is it just your foot?

yea it sounds like a calf. if it is sore as well trying stretching it more before the game and then again at half time if you need. due to having wierd feet i have alot of calf troubble but stretching normally seems to fix it

Doctor

Ste: Go and see a doctor mate to identify the problem. The sooner the better so that you can work on the remedial side of sorting this out. In the meantine use R.I.C.E. on the area.
Rest, Ice, Compression (bandage), Elevation.

Cheers
