Treating Muscle strains of the thigh Plano, Frisco, McKinney and AllenWhat is it?

Muscle strains of the thigh is an injury or condition common in people who participate in sporting activities. The thigh has three sets of muscles, the hamstring muscles in the back of the thigh, the quadriceps muscles in the front of the thigh, and the adductor muscles on the inside of the thigh. A muscle strain of the thigh typically involves pulling or tearing of one or more of these muscles caused either by trauma, the muscle being stretched beyond it’s normal limit or strenuous activity.

Symptoms

Most commonly people who experience a muscle strain of the thigh will describe a popping or snapping sensation as the muscles tear. These injuries can be exhibit severe pain in the front, back or side of thigh and it usually occurs during the moment of injury and is followed by bruising, swelling, and weakness in the affected area. Once a muscle is injured it’s more susceptible to re-injury, therefore, should be allowed ample time to heal before resuming certain activities.

Treatment

In general, most thigh strains can be treated with rest, ice, compression with either shorts or a wrap bandage, anti-inflammatory medications and a physical therapy or rehab program designed to restore the range of motion and strength. It’s also important to avoid the activity that caused the pain or injury for a period of time to allow proper healing to take place. The muscle should be at full strength and pain-free before you resume any sports or strenuous activities. This will help prevent further or future injury.
