Injured Muscles, Tendons and Ligaments

Find Relief from Sprains, Strains, Tears & More

Muscles and tendons are the tissues that move joints. The muscles are the “red meat” of the body. When they receive a signal from the brain via the nerves, the muscles contract. This pull is transmitted through the tendon to the bone so that the joint moves.

Muscle strain, muscle pull, or even a muscle tear refers to damage to a muscle or its attaching tendons. You can put undue pressure on muscles during the course of normal daily activities, with sudden heavy lifting, during sports, or while performing work tasks.

Muscle damage can be in the form of tearing (part or all) of the muscle fibers and the tendons attached to the muscle. The tearing of the muscle can also damage small blood vessels, causing local bleeding, or bruising, and pain caused by irritation of the nerve endings in the area.

 

Prevention

Reduce your risk.

  • Stretch daily
  • Start an exercise program in consultation with your doctor
  • Do a ‘cool down’ program after you exercise
  • Establish a warm-up routine prior to strenuous exercise, such as gently running in place for a couple of minutes
 
 

Symptoms

Symptoms of injured muscles, tendons and ligaments include:

  • Swelling, bruising, or redness due to the injury
  • Pain at rest
  • Pain when the injured muscle or tendons are used
  • Weakness of the muscle or tendons
