When your body is well exercised, fit and healthy, you have appropriate muscle tone to manage the stresses carried by your calf, quads, groin or hamstrings. 

If your base of support is not stable then the muscles of the lower limb, pelvis and back are overworking to compensate. Often we place extra pressure on our bodies in the name of fashion, like high heels. This unnatural position is then compensated by extra pressure on alternate muscles and body systems.

The over correction can be often seen through pronated feet and this is likely to overwork the lateral compartments of the calf and thigh (quads, ITB, hamstrings and hip rotators.)

A full biomechanical assessment is required to resolve these issues.
