About Muscle Injuries

A muscle injury occurs when there is damage to the soft tissues of the body: muscles, tendons, and ligaments. This type of trauma is generally the result of repetitive movements or physical injuries from contact sports, like football and wrestling. Other strenuous activities, like heavy lifting and running, can also place strain on your muscles. Soft tissue injuries can produce unwanted symptoms, such as stiffness, numbness, tingling, and limited mobility. This is why it's important to incorporate self-care regimens, like stretching, hot and cold therapy, and rest, into your daily routine. At Tricity Pain Associates in New Braunfels and Seguin, TX, we have worked with countless men and women who have suffered from a severe muscle injury.

Muscle Injury Treatments

Typically, muscle injuries can be eased with at-home care regimens, like ice baths, hot packs, and over-the-counter pain medication. However, when these types of therapies do not provide the relief you need, you may need to consider other treatments to help improve your symptoms. Generally, we usually recommend a combination of physical therapy and prescription pain medication. In some cases, steroid injections, muscle relaxants, and nerve blocks may be considered to significantly reduce your discomfort. Our interventional pain care physicians will work closely with you to build a custom treatment plan that is appropriate for your condition, level of pain, and personal preferences.
