Muscle Strain & Bruising

Torn Muscle

 

Muscle pulls and strains happen most frequently in the first or last few minutes of a sports event either because the muscle is not warmed up and stretching properly or because of fatigue and the loss of control and overstretching. Bruises generally result from contact with other players or with a hard surface.

SELF Help advice

In both cases the immediate effect is bruising and you should apply the RICE treatment, followed by gentle but progressive rehabilitation.

Where to get help?

If after trying the above your muscle strain isn't improving, you are still in pain, it is restricting your movement or generally affecting your quality of life, please feel free to get in touch for a no obligation consultation at physiotherapy practice in Hull.
