About Muscle Strain
Muscle strains or pulled muscle results when a particular muscle is torn or is overstretched. This usually happens due to fatigue, improper or overuse of the muscle. Muscle strains can happen in any muscle but they are most commonly found in the lower back, neck, shoulder and hamstring, the muscle just behind the thigh region. The strain causes some pain and can limit movement within the affected muscle group. If it is mild to moderate it can be treated successfully using ice, heat, anti-inflammatory meds and sound therapy. If the strain on the muscles is only mild, the torn muscle may feel slightly stiff but is still flexible enough to be used. For severe muscle strains, there is an excessive tearing of the muscle resulting in pain and limited movement. The symptoms of mild to moderate muscle strains normally go away within a few weeks but severe strains can take months to heal.
Etiology of Muscle Strains
Acute muscle strains happen when there is sudden tearing that happens as a result of injuries or trauma. This can happen because of: failure to warm up correctly prior to a physical activity, poor flexibility, poor conditioning, overexertion and lastly, fatigue. A popular misconception is that muscle strains can only happen during rigorous workouts of high intensity but the truth is it can happen even while simply walking. Long and short of it is that muscle strains can affect anyone and they are also more common in athletes and people who are very active. Even if you do not participate in sports or work out a lot, you can still experience muscle strain if there is sudden exertion than usual.
Acute strains happen when the patient: slips or lose footing, jumps, runs, throws something, lifts something heavy or lifts something in an awkward position. It is also more common in cold weather because the muscles tend to be stiffer in lower temperatures and it is vital that extra time is allotted to warm up in this environment to minimize the possibility of strains.
Chronic Muscle Strains are usually due to repetitive movement and can occur because of: sports like rowing, tennis, golf or baseball, holding your back or neck in an awkward position for long periods of time, such as when working at a desk and lastly poor posture.
Muscle Strains versus Hernias
While both may be caused by overuse,, they are totally different injuries. Muscle strain is caused by tears in the fibers of the muscle and unless the strain is very severe, most can be treated at home. Hernias on the other hand occur when one of the internal organs or other body parts protrude through the wall of muscle tissue that usually holds it in place. Hernias normally does not get better on their own, and surgery may be needed to repair it
Muscle Strain and other Injuries
Other common injuries that result to muscle pain similar to muscle strain include: pinched nerves, herniated discs and blood clotting. Speak to your healthcare provider should you experience any sudden, sharp pain in your body, especially if it occurs during physical activity such as playing sports or during a workout.
Diagnosis of Muscle Strain
It can be diagnosed through a physical exam, symptoms and history of recent physical activity.
If you are suffering from a severe strain, the healthcare provider may request for some imaging tests including:
- Ultrasound – To test for tears and fluid buildup around the strained muscle.
- MRI – To check for blood clots or any internal bleeding.
The tests can also help locate any collateral damage to other tissues like the ligaments and tendons.
The most effective means of preventing muscle strain is to stretch and warmup prior to exercising. Increasing the overall flexibility can also protect the muscles from future injury. The more flexible you are, the more space the muscle fibers can stretch before beginning to tear. It is quite similar to how certain kinds of fabrics have more give compared to others. A favorite pair of denims can have some good flexibility to them due to the fact that you have stretched them out over the years. On the other hand, a brand new pair requires wearing a few times before they become comfortable. Muscles also behave the same way. The more you work them out and gradually stretch them, the more flexible they become upon movement.
