Diagram Of Gastrocnemius
angulation of muscle fibre fascicles within the medial gastrocnemius is shown in the longitudinal section diagram in Fig. 1 (see also Swett & Eldred, 1960, Fig. 2). Individual fascicles extend all the way from the aponeurosis of origin to that of insertion as in human gastrocnemius (Feinstein, Lindegard, Nyman&Wohlfart, 1955), andit is presumedthat

Gastrocnemius, which is the big . muscle at the back of the lower leg , and the Soleus muscle, which . is a smaller muscle lower down in th e leg and under the . Gastrocnemius. Either of these two muscles can be strained (torn). INJURY . A calf strain is caused by a tearing of part of the gastrocnemius or soleus
