What is a Muscle Strain?

Muscle Strain

Muscle strain is an injury to the muscle that takes place due to strenuous activity. Anyone is able to inflect pressure on their muscles while going through their normal daily activities, spontaneous heavy lifting, while taking part in sports, or even while carrying out work tasks. Muscle strain is sometimes all so known as a muscle pull. An extreme muscle strain can lead to a muscle tear. The tearing of the muscle could also cause harm to blood vessels, trigging local bleeding and pain(brought about by discomfort of the nerve endings in that region).

Symptoms of muscle strain include:

Muscle pain and tenderness, generally after an activity that requires you to stretch or violently contracts the muscle discomfort levels normally raise when you move the muscle but is relieved by rest.

Muscle become swollen, discoloration or both

Muscle cramp or spasm

Either a drop in muscle strength or total lack of use in the muscle

A snapping sound in the muscle at the point of injury

A gap, dent or other defect in the normal outline of the muscle
