Muscle strains can be acute (sudden), or chronic in origin. Acute injuries usually occur during the cooler months because the muscles are stiffer and take longer to warm up. In an acute injury, a person will usually feel immediate, unrelenting muscle pain with an activity. Symptoms include sudden pain, soreness, decreased range of movement, bruising, swelling, spasms, stiffness, and/or weakness. An acute strain can happen when a person slips, jumps, runs, throws something, performs heavy lifting or lifts in an awkward position.
Chronic muscle strains are usually the result of repetitive movement. This can be due to rowing, tennis, golf, baseball, assembly work, extended awkward positioning at a desk, and/or poor posture.
The following is a list some, but not all, commonly pulled muscles that are treatable with PRP (platelet rich plasma) or stem cells:
As with all pulled muscles, a pulled hamstring muscle, ligament or tendon can be very debilitating and frustrating. Typically, these injuries occur in younger, athletic patients, but they may occur in any misfortunate, usually as a result of a fall or awkward twist. Traditional treatment with ice, rest and anti-inflammatory medications is often followed by heat and more rest. Recovery may take months, and months. Any activity may aggravate the injury and set the timetable back even further.
Stem cell and/or PRP therapy are often very effective in speeding the healing of injuries to muscles, ligaments and tendons thereby allowing both athletes and the unfortunate to return to full activity within a relatively short period of time. These therapies concentrate, activate and focus the body’s natural ability to heal.
