Jim, I think that as with most pain issues, you’ve got to look up and down the chain to see where the restriction is. It could be tightness in your foot, or tacked down tissue higher up in the calf somewhere. Try smashing the heck out of the soles of your feet with a lacrosse ball, trying to unglue the heel cord and stacking two mobility devices to hit the medial and lateral seams of the affected lower leg. Hopefully you’ll feed slack into the system that will alleviate the issue.
