Recognizing Muscle Strain Symptoms

Muscle strains can happen suddenly or develop over time due to overuse. Common symptoms include:

  • Pain – Localized pain is a hallmark symptom of a muscle strain. The severity can range from mild to intense.
  • Swelling – Inflammation may occur around the affected muscle, leading to swelling or a noticeable lump.
  • Limited range of motion – A strained muscle may restrict your ability to move the affected body part fully.
  • Muscle spasms – In some cases, muscle spasms or cramping can accompany a strain.

Comprehensive Muscle Strain Treatment

Our experienced medical professionals at PhysicianOne Urgent Care are well-equipped to provide comprehensive muscle strain treatment. Your visit may include:

  • Clinical evaluation – Our team will assess the extent of your muscle strain, considering the affected area and the circumstances surrounding the injury.
  • Imaging – In some cases, diagnostic imaging such as X-rays may be recommended to rule out other potential issues.
  • Pain management – We'll develop a tailored plan to manage pain and inflammation, which may include over-the-counter or prescription medications.
  • At-home and specialist care recommendations – To promote healing, adequate rest—and, for limb injuries, elevation—may be advised. For more severe strains, we can provide referrals to trusted physical therapists to aid in your recovery.
