Physical therapy after muscle ruptures
- Grade 1: minor injury that affects a small number of fibers muscle (less than 5%). It is a fibrillar lesion (affects several muscle fibers), practically a muscular stretch. Clinical: pain localized, without functional impotence, stiffness and cramps at 2-5 days after trauma.
- Grade 2: Medium lesion affecting an extensive number of muscle fibers but the muscle is not completely broken. The injury is fascicular type (several fascicles of muscle). Clinical: intense pain, swelling, moderate bruising (subcutaneous hematoma), stiffness and cramps lasting one week.
- Grade 3: severe injury with complete muscle rupture. Clinical: sudden, intense pain, inability to contract the muscle, bruises and significant swelling, on inspection the muscle itself observe prominently.
Treatment of muscle tears
- R (rest) = rest, ie reduction or even stopping sports activity and more demanding domestic activities. A crutch can be used if it is an injury to lower limb level. In some cases it is even recommended total bed rest. The duration of rest from exertion is established by a doctor.
- I (ice) = ice, ie its application on the areas traumatized for 20 minutes 4-8 times a day. Not applicable directly on the skin, but wrapped in a towel.
- C (compression) = compression, ie maintaining a pressure constant using the elastic phase on the ankle, knee, elbow or the affected shoulder.
- E (elevation) = lifting the affected limb from the plane horizontally. Basically, in a sloping position (lying down) the limb rises traumatized on a pillow, above the plane of the heart.
The second phase of treatment aims to restore muscular function. Most patients reach this stage directly, precisely because they completely neglected the first phase, which is not the case desired.
