Muscle Strain Injury In The Legs

Daniel DeLeon, Physical Therapist with Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute, says if It's a small tear on the microscopic level, and it is a great one strain, returning to dosed exercise or gentle stretching would be appropriate in case of muscle tears. He affirms the worst thing is overstretching the muscle. One of the best things to do is, instead of stretch it, is move it. “Get on the bike, walking… everything should be in tolerance," he says.
