Muscle Strain Injuries

Muscle Strain Injuries and Muscle Related Pain

At Principle Four Osteopathy we see a diverse range of clients, varying from the office worker in the cbd to the manual worker or tradie who is required to be active all day and put their body under a great deal of physical stress.  We also see a range of people who engage in activities such as fun runs, triathlons, cycling to competitive sports.  The one common feature we see amongst all of these individuals is that muscle related pain and strains can occur in everyone despite the different work tasks, sports and activities undertaken.

Muscle strains are often seen in clients who have exerted themselves i.e. sprinting in football whereby a strain injury can occur in the hamstrings or quadricep muscle.  Individuals who overuse muscles in the context of work or sport can also develop muscle related pain.  In many situations we will see office based workers develop pain as a result of perhaps not moving enough and being static in awkward postures.

When a client presents to our Melbourne City CBD osteopathy clinic, usually we will discuss in detail ones history of the complaint, undertake a physical assessment, provide manual therapy or other treatment interventions as well as support active management through exercise prescription and providing advice on ergonomics etc.

Muscles That We Usually See Muscle Strains or Muscle Pain Include:

  • Thigh muscles (quadricep)
  • Hamstring strain
  • Calf strain
  • Lower back strain
  • Neck strain
  • Shoulder muscles (rotator cuff, biceps, trapezius, levator scapulae) strain
  • Forearm flexor and extensor muscle strain
