Calf Ouch !

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
As a former Jackson Hole ski-bum in the early 70's, I never experienced the pain I get now when I spend a day in my boots. I used to think it was because I was out of shape but even after working out for 9 months it still happens !!
After skiing, when I remove my boots, I can barely walk. My calf is so badly bruised that I cannot straighten my foot out. It is affecting the top of my Achilles tendon and tightening it. The pain is incredible and only subsides after 1-2 hours.
I have tried various brands of rental and my own boots .....but no go.

Any suggestions here.
This is really so bad that I may need to give up.

Are you standing too erect, rather than matching the forward lean of your boots? Perhaps also the fore/aft angles need looked at? What bindings are you using? What boot sole length? what boot? Calf circumference? Man or woman? wear pumps or high heels often? answering these questions will help us get a better picture of what may be happening?
