Muscle Strains

Muscle strain

A muscle pull occurs when your muscle is overstretched or torn. This usually occurs as a result of fatigue, overuse, or improper use of a muscle.  Strains can happen in any muscle, but they are most common in your lower back, neck, shoulder, and hamstring, which is a muscle behind your thigh.

These strains can cause pain and may limit movement within affected muscle group. Mild-to-moderate strains can be successfully treated at home with ice, heat, anti-inflammatory medications.

Main symptoms of Muscle Strains

  • sudden onset of pain
  • soreness
  • limited range of movement
  • bruising or discoloration
  • swelling
  • muscle spasms
  • stiffness
  • weakness

Causes

Ana cute muscle pain is when your muscle tears suddenly and unexpectedly. Such tears can occur either from injuries or trauma. This can be due to :

non warming up properly before physical exercise

poor flexibility

poor conditioning

overexertion and fatigue

Avoid using your muscle for a few days, especially if movement causes an increase in pain. Too much rest can cause muscles to become weak, which can prolong the healing process. Contact doctor. Summiturgentcare365 can help you in case you need any help. Visit the clinic and get treated properly.
