Muscle Strain

Muscle strain, often referred to as a pulled muscle, occurs when a muscle is stretched or torn due to excessive or sudden exertion. The size of the strain may vary from a few millimeters to much larger. Most strains are typically quite small. This can happen during activities like lifting heavy objects, sudden movements, or improper muscle use. The result is pain, swelling, limited range of motion, and sometimes bruising at the affected area.
