Walking up and down stairs with a calf injury

Hey everyone, here's a quick guide for walking up steps with a calf injury that is working for me. Especially apply this for larger steps.

While going up stairs, lead with the non-injured leg. Bring up the injured leg level with the non-injured leg, without extending beyond that. Also, avoid toe lift-off - that slight shift puts instant strain on the calf.

While going down stairs, do the opposite: lead with the injured leg, bringing the non-injured leg level to it, without extending beyond that.

Hope this helps!
