Stiffness in the legs after stretching too much. No pain. Anything to be done?

I am a 49 yr old female. I run almost every day and have been injury free. I believe I may have stretched too far when walking down bleachers. I then had a stiffness in the crease in the back of my leg. It has been 3 weeks and the stifness remains. i am still running a few miles a day> i am stiff at first and then I am ok to run. After driving or sitting too long my lower leg is stiff. i have streched, and it doesnt help. I can not squat all the way down on that side. I have no pain in the knee and my leg is not swollen. Thank you for your time.

Thanks for writing to us.
The stiffness in the legs without any pain is likely to be related to mild osteoarthritic changes. This can be related to a decrease in the joint lubricants also.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
