Muscle Strain

A muscle strain occurs from overstretching or tearing of the muscle or its tendons. Tendons are tough cords of fibrous connective tissue that connects muscle to bone. Muscle strain is also known as pulled muscle. It can arise when muscles get fatigued / tired or from putting excessive  pressure on muscles during certain activities, for eg sudden heavy lifting, excessive running, intense muscle use like during sports. It also may result when muscles are overused or used improperly. Though it can affect any muscle but muscle of neck, lower back and muscle in back of thigh are frequently involved.

The symptoms that it causes include pain, soreness over affected muscle. Stiffness and swelling may also accompany. Next there may occur weakness, spasm of muscle involved. Range of movement of affected muscles is also decreased. Bruising and a knotted feeling muscle are  yet other attending symptoms. Muscle strain can be acute or chronic. In acute muscle strain there occurs tearing of muscle all of sudden usually from trauma and injuries. Some of its reasons are overexertion, not warming up prior to intense physical activity and poor flexibility. It can also occur from jumping, running, lifting heavy weight, slipping. 

When it comes to chronic muscle strains these occur from repetitive movement like from playing certain sports like golf, tennis, baseball. Next reason behind it is maintaining poor posture. 

Muscle Contusion (bruised muscle)

It is very common among the various sports injuries. It refers to injury to muscle fibres and connective tissues.

The frequently involved area in this type of injury is thigh and next is forearm. These usually result from a blunt injury / trauma. It can also happen from falling on a hard surface that damages the muscle fibers and connective tissue without  causing any breaks in the skin.

The muscles have plenty of blood vessels and when muscle fibers are damaged then bleeding may occur and excessive blood may collect in muscle resulting in sore painful swelling.

Its symptoms include pain located in the affected area. Next, there occurs swelling and discolouration at the area involved. Person may also feel a knot over the muscle area affected. Additionally there is limited mobility at the injured site.

Complications can occur, which include compartment syndrome. In this case, internal bleeding from an injury causes swelling in tissue from  the changed pressure. This can reduce the flow of blood to muscle and nerves causing death of tissue and sometimes loss of limb too. Next complication that can occur is myositis ossificans. In this case when muscle bruise is deeper or when a muscle gets trauma frequently again and again then the muscle tissue can become hard and form bone. This tends to limit the range of mobility.
