gastrocnemius head tear

Was just wondering how long I should wait after a minor tear of the gastrocnemius head? I have done RICE, and it’s been 48 hours after the tear. Would futher damage arise if I continued to do quad dominant exercises like squats or leg extensions?

I would lay off leg work till you get it assessed.

Did you get it diagnosed?

Yes my dads a GP. He said it was just a minor tear. And it doesn’t feel to bad either except when streaching my calf, So I feel its not to bad either. Any suggestions on helping the healing process or some leg exercises that wouldn’t worsen the injury.
