Muscle Injury

  • "Having developed a recent work - related lower back injury, Rob Hanley gave me a simple but thorough program which gave immediate relief to my pain and a rapid return to full fitness. His program has ensured a return to normal work duties with no long term impediments. I'm very grateful for his knowledge, skill and professionalism."

Muscle strains or pulled muscles are very common. They happen when we overstretch or tear a muscle.

Strains can happen in any part of the body but they are most common in the neck, back and legs. Athletes and gym goers often can get them in their arms too.

A person will normally feel a strain the moment it happens and the symptoms can include:

  • Soreness
  • Sudden pain
  • Bruising or swelling
  • Pain on using that muscle
  • Feeling of tightness or weakness
  • Knotted up feeling

The most important thing to do is follow RICER: Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation and then Rehab
