Muscle Strain & Soft Tissue Injury

Muscle Strain & Soft Tissue Injury

Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) and muscle aches are a common and normal symptom post-exercise. However, when muscles strain/tear/overstretch/pull which results in pain, spasms, weakness and reduced muscle performance then this is an injured muscle which may likely benefit from an accurate assessment and evidenced based treatment.

The most commonly strained muscles are the high speed and load muscles such as the hamstrings, thigh (quadriceps) and calf's.

Muscle tears can range from a mild strain (grade one), moderate strain (grade two) to a severe strain or complete rupture (grade three).

Treatment options vary depending on the severity of the strain or tear.

Returning to sport can be easy or complicated depending on the muscle affected. Some muscle tears such as hamstrings are notoriously difficult to get right. That's when it is very important to seek professional assistance.
