Muscle Tears / Strains / Pulls

Muscle Tears / Strains / Pulls

Injuries to the soft tissues are injuries related to the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. A muscle tear, strain, or pull is an injury to a muscle or attaching tendons. These can occur when sudden pressure or tension, overstretches, or tears are put on a muscle group. Muscle tears can damage blood vessels, causing bleeding and bruising at the injury site. The pain can also be caused by irritation of nerve endings in the area.
