Muscle contusion is a condition that is characterized by bruising in the muscles. It generally tends to occur in athletes who play a lot of contact sports. Repetitive blows in any part of the body may cause damage to the underlying muscle tissues. These blows may lead to internal bleeding, resulting in blood clot formation. The most common site where it occurs are the quadriceps.
The various causes of this condition are:
- Direct repetitive blows to a part of the muscle in contact sports such as football
- If you fall on a hard surface
- It may also occur if the muscle comes in contact real hard with sports equipment like soccer balls
The symptoms of a muscle contusion are:
- You may experience swelling of the muscle
- Excessive pain
- Decrease in range of motion in the concerned body part
- It may lead to leaking of blood vessels
- You may also experience hematoma where a lump is formed over the affected spot
- Symptoms of broken bones, dislocations and fractures may also occur
Complications: This disorder may also lead to various complications such as compartment syndrome, which leads to compression of blood vessels resulting in pain.
Treatment: The basic treatment for this condition is the RICE protocol which is rest, ice, compression and elevation. You should rest the muscle, then apply ice to the affected area to reduce the pain. You can also take NSAIDs (non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) to reduce the pain. In severe cases, the doctor may drain the lump surgically.
It is advisable to not return to your normal sports routine in order to allow the muscle to recover. If you carry on with your regular routine, it may result in further complications like the formation of scar tissue. You may undergo various stretching exercises to relieve the pain and make a gradual return to your normal sporting activities.
In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

The spine is a foundational structure of the human body that supports both the head and the neck. The neck is especially vulnerable to the damaging effects of poor posture because it’s influenced by the position of the skull as well as the curvature of the spine.
When the neck leans forward and the head is in front of the shoulders, the forward weight of the head can place considerable pressure on the vertebrae of the neck. This position, if held repeatedly for long periods of time, has been found to contribute to disc deterioration and other degenerative conditions.
Prolonged malposition of the spine or the head can put a fair amount of strain on neck muscles, causing them to become tight and tense.
This muscle tension often leads to pain and stiffness. There are also several other muscles that are particularly susceptible to damage caused by strain.
These muscles are-
1- scalene muscles
3-levator scapulae muscles.
A forward head position also places strain on the upper back and shoulder muscles. Excessive muscle strain is a common culprit for recurring back pain.
The results of poor posture-
If left uncorrected over time, poor posture can lead to numerous long-term problems. Improper posture can begin to irritate the ligaments, joints and soft tissues in and surrounding the neck.
Irritation could contribute to the development of osteoarthritis, disc herniation or degenerative disc disease. It may also cause decreased range of motion and the development of painful trigger points (areas of muscle that are extremely sensitive to touch).
How physiotherapy can help?
Treatment of neck problems involves identifying and managing the underlying causes present.
Physiotherapy treatment includes- mobilization and/or manipulation techniques, stretching and strengthening of the neck musculature, soft tissue therapy and trigger pointing, heat therapy, cryotherapy, postural correction, acupuncture, ultrasound and pilates.
Manual therapy techniques are used to loosen joint and soft tissue restrictions, while posture correction and specific and how to prevent recurrences.
The majority of neck pain sufferers tend to work at desks; therefore, optimising this environment through ergonomic assessment is often the key to successful management of this problem.
