Muscle Strain Symptoms

If someone overuses or improperly uses a muscle or tendon, it can cause it to overstretch or tear. This is commonly referred to as pulling a muscle. Signs of a muscle strain include:

  • Pain (this often develops suddenly)
  • Muscle spasms
  • Swelling and bruising
  • Stiffness and weakness

Muscle Strain Recovery

Are you wondering how to treat a muscle strain? You’ll be happy to know that muscle strain symptoms can often be relieved using conservative treatments, which might include:

  • Pain or anti-inflammatory medication
  • Ice/heat therapy
  • Compression
  • Elevation
  • Periodic rest

In more severe cases, physical therapy or surgery could be necessary to achieve relief. A trained medical provider can prescribe the course of treatment that’s right for you.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
