Muscle strains can be sudden and unexpected from abnormal stress on push/pull muscle movements which is usually experienced in sporting injuries and recreational activities.
Muscle strains are usually depicted to hold swelling, tightness and muscle weakness but depending on the injury you can still function normally. Movement at full capacity will be difficult and could cause significant pain.
These strain injuries can be tended to and healed but what is concerning is the rate of muscle strains becoming the standard. Therefore, it is highly beneficial to require the assistance of a physiotherapist for consulting advice to look from a temporary and continuing injury perspective.
