Don’t just treat the knee if the knee hurts!
We all have experienced some calf tightness after running or activity, but that is not what we are talking about here. If you have constant tightness or stiff ankle (or ankles) no matter how much stretching or mobilizing you do your calf is probably holding on for dear life.
