Deciphering Discomfort: Is it a Pulled Muscle, or a Serious Injury? Here’s How to Tell.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]When you experience muscle pain during a strenuous workout or after participating in a new physical activity, it’s easy to assume that you’ve just “pulled a muscle Understanding what a pulled muscle is, and what other conditions might mimic that sensation, is important not only for proper treatment but also to prevent further injury. Let’s dive into how to tell the difference.

Woman Stretching With Pulled Muscle What is a pulled muscle?

The term "pulled muscle" is often used informally to describe what is medically recognized as a muscle strain. This condition involves the tearing of muscle fibers and can affect any muscle group, with the hamstrings and adductors being particularly prone to such injuries. Similarly, tendons — which anchor muscles to bones — can also suffer strains. Strains are categorized into three grades, reflecting the severity of the injury:

Grade I

This involves minor tearing of the muscle fibers, resulting in some pain and discomfort, but generally healing within a few days without significant loss of strength or function.

Grade II

This is characterized by a more significant tear, but not complete, and may result in a moderate loss of function and strength. Recovery may require more time and possibly physical therapy.

Grade III

This is a complete rupture of the muscle or tendon fibers, leading to a total loss of muscle function and strength in the affected area. Such injuries are serious and may necessitate surgical intervention, depending on various factors including which muscle is involved. It is important to seek medical attention for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan, especially in cases of severe strains.

How do you know if you pulled a muscle?

Pulled muscles, or muscle strains, commonly result from activities that involve a rapid contraction of the muscles. Such activities could include sprinting, lifting weights, jumping or any explosive movement. For example, if you suddenly sprint during a soccer game after a period of relative inactivity or at a speed greater than usual, and you feel a sharp pain in the back of your thigh, it's likely you've sustained a muscle strain. An increase in the intensity or speed of your workouts without adequate conditioning can also lead to muscle strains. In the event of higher-grade strains, you may experience a sensation similar to a “pop”, which indicates a more severe muscle tear. This same sensation can be associated with other injuries such as ligament tears, underscoring the seriousness of the injury. To ascertain the extent and nature of the injury, paying attention to the symptoms post-incident is crucial:
  • With a pulled muscle, the pain will typically be localized to the site of the strained muscle, and you might observe bruising along the muscle.
  • If a tendon is involved, symptoms may include bruising, swelling and pain that is more proximal to a joint where the muscle transitions into the tendon.
Testing for a muscle strain can be done through active movement. Contracting the muscle in question can help confirm the strain:
  • With a hamstring strain, bending the knee (which engages the hamstring muscle) will likely cause pain.
  • If an adductor muscle is strained, bringing the thighs together or squeezing them against resistance can be painful.
Should you experience such symptoms, it's important to cease the aggravating activity immediately to prevent further injury. Seeking medical advice is also key to ensuring proper diagnosis and treatment, especially since similar symptoms can be indicative of other types of injuries.

How to treat a pulled muscle

If you suspect you've pulled a muscle, it's essential to follow appropriate steps to ensure optimal recovery. Here's a plan that can help:

Rest

Initially, it's critical to rest the injured area to prevent further damage. Rest means avoiding activities that increase pain, not complete immobilization unless advised by a healthcare professional. If the pain is severe, a short period of more significant rest (a day or two) may be necessary. As the pain subsides, gradually reintroduce movement within a pain-free range.

Ice

To manage swelling and pain, you can use ice packs. Applying ice for 20 minutes several times a day can help reduce inflammation and numb the sore area. Be sure to wrap the ice pack in a cloth to protect your skin.

Compression

Along with icing, compression can help manage swelling. Use an elastic bandage or a specialized compression garment to gently squeeze the area, being careful not to wrap it too tightly.

Move

While rest is important, completely immobilizing the muscle can lead to stiffness and weaken the tissue. Begin by gently moving the injured muscle within its pain-free range. For a hamstring strain, this might involve laying on your stomach and slowly bending and straightening your knee. Start with small movements and gradually increase as tolerated, ensuring you're not fighting against gravity too much at the start.

See a physical therapist

Consulting with a physical therapist is advisable, regardless of the strain's severity. A PT can assess your injury and guide you through a tailored recovery program. They can help restore function, strength and flexibility and offer advice on how to prevent future injuries. Remember, these are general guidelines. It's important to listen to your body and not rush through the healing process. If your symptoms are severe, if there's no improvement or if you're unsure about any aspect of your recovery, seek professional medical advice.

How do I know if I pulled more than a muscle?

Injuries that do not involve a rapid muscle contraction — such as sudden changes in direction, twisting motions, impacts from falls or collisions — often result in damage to non-contractile tissues. These types of injuries can include:
  • Ligament sprains: Overstretching or tearing of ligaments, which connect bone to bone and provide joint stability
  • Bone bruises or fractures: Direct impacts or stress can cause bruising within the bone or a break/fracture
  • Joint dislocations: Joints may be forced out of their normal position, typically from a fall or an intense hit
The severity of these injuries can vary greatly: Mild cases may result in discomfort and swelling, but you might still be able to move the affected joint and bear weight on the limb. In such cases, monitoring the injury for improvement and applying basic first aid measures like rest, ice, compression and elevation (R.I.C.E.) can be an initial approach. Moderate cases may allow for some movement but could present with more significant pain, swelling and functional limitations. Caution is advised, and if symptoms do not improve or if there is uncertainty about the severity of the injury, a medical consultation is recommended. Severe cases often present with an inability to bear weight, significant pain, apparent deformity and immediate loss of function. These symptoms warrant urgent medical attention. Inability to bear weight is a particularly concerning sign and suggests the need for immediate medical evaluation, which may include imaging tests such as X-rays, MRIs or CT scans to determine the extent of the injury. While the ability to move a joint or bear weight may indicate a less severe injury, it is not a definitive measure of the need for medical attention. Pain, swelling and the functional impact of the injury should all be considered. If there is any doubt about the severity of the injury, it is safer to seek medical evaluation promptly.     [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_text_separator title="Featured Products" border_width="2"][vc_row_inner equal_height="yes" content_placement="middle" gap="35"][vc_column_inner width="1/3"][vc_single_image image="170145" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" css=".vc_custom_1699368974847{padding-right: 7% !important;padding-left: 7% !important;}" link="https://www.vitacost.com/heali-precut-synthetic-silk-kinesiology-tape-for-athletes-with-magnesium-menthol-blue-inspo"][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width="1/3"][vc_single_image image="170142" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" css=".vc_custom_1699368740464{padding-right: 7% !important;padding-left: 7% !important;}" link="https://www.vitacost.com/green-goo-first-aid-salve-large-tin"][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width="1/3"][vc_single_image image="170141" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" css=".vc_custom_1699368779091{padding-right: 7% !important;padding-left: 7% !important;}" link="https://www.vitacost.com/boiron-arnicare-bruise-cream"][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
