Muscle Strains & Soft Tissue Injuries

Muscles are strained or torn when some or all of the fibers fail to cope with the demand placed upon them. They are most likely to occur in sudden acceleration, deceleration or change of direction. The most commonly affected muscles are hamstrings, gastrocnemius, quadriceps and hip adductors.

classification

There are classifications grades of muscle strains:

Grade 1
Tear in a small number of muscle fibers and local pain with no loss of strength.

Grade 2
Tear in a significant number of muscle fibers with associated pain and swelling. Pain reproduced on muscle contraction
Grade 3
Complete tear of muscle. Usually occurs at musculotendinous junction.
