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.
There are classifications grades of muscle strains:
Tear in a small number of muscle fibers and local pain with no loss of strength.
Treatment of soft tissue strains and sprains must address issues in the acute phase straight after injury as well as the rehabilitation that follows.
Rehabilitation after injury must take into account all the factors involved in getting the person back to full safe activity or sport.
