I have got myself one of these "stick" type massagers. Have seen a number of Youtube vids on how to use them on my calf muscles( which I regularly have problems with ) . I have found a couple of sore,tender points deep inside the muscle which "hurt" if I press on them hard with the stick roller. Is this how its supposed to feel?? I thought that the massage was supposed to "relieve" tightness/pain - this seems to make the point even sorer.
Yesterday - I thought I may have done some damage to myself - I don't think I overdid it , but I used the massager for the first time - it certainly "hurt" to use it as I have heard others say elsewhere - but as the day wore on, my calf felt really quite bruised internally ( although not showing any signs externally of that) . This morning it seems to be OK - will see what happens when I go on a shortish run.
Any thoughts please??
