About Muscle Injuries
When a tear, strain, or rupture happens to the fibrous tissues of your muscles, tendons, or ligaments, a painful muscle injury can occur and create uncomfortable symptoms. Often, these types of muscle trauma happen because of car accidents, sports participation, bad falls, or exercise. Muscle injuries can range in severity and sometimes, if not addressed, may worsen the condition and cause long-term damage, such as chronic instability. If you suffer from a muscle injury, you may experience painful symptoms, like inflammation, tenderness, bruising, discoloration, or stiffness. To reduce your current symptoms and ensure you don’t create further damage, we recommend scheduling an appointment to receive a proper diagnosis to treat your muscle injury. At Tricity Pain Associates in Corpus Christi, TX, our professional pain management team strives to help you recover and live more comfortably. Please call our caring team to learn more about the unique treatments we offer for painful muscle injuries.
