Muscle Strain FAQs

A muscle strain is the tearing or stretching of muscle fibers.

Pain at rest, muscle weakness, swelling, bruising or redness due to an injury, and inability to use the muscle are the typical signs of a muscle strain.

The duration of recovery is based on the severity of a muscle strain. Mostly, it heals within a few weeks but if there is a severe muscle strain, it will take a longer time to recover/heal.
