Jody Wiebe, physiotherapist, discusses The Pain Associated with Muscle Pulls in Soccer

A muscle pull or a muscle strain is when the muscle has been stretched past the length of the muscle fibers and actual tearing of the muscle fibers occur.

Signs and symptoms include pain at the site of the pull as well as swelling and bruising, depending on the severity. If the pull is significant enough or severe enough, then there can be limited range of motion at the joints that are connected to that muscle group.

For soccer players, at the time of the muscle pull it can be very painful, and depending on the degree of the pull, it can actually limit the ability to walk or weight bear on it. And also depending again on the severity of the muscle pull there may be significant swelling and/or bruising.

If a snap or a pop is heard at the time of injury, it’s indicative of a more severe muscle pull and that should be followed up by a visit to the physician or the physiotherapist as soon as possible.

There are a number of reasons why preventing ACL injuries is important for soccer players as well as for other athletes.

The surgery itself that is involved in restructuring and repairing the ACL ligament can be fairly – or is – fairly involved and it’s followed by an intensive rehab program. The time span from injury to return to sport can last from months to even up to one or two years.

Many soccer players as well as other athletes return to sports successfully after ACL repair. They are at risk for developing osteoarthritis later in life, moreso if the ACL is not repaired after having a complete tear.

It’s important to follow up with your registered physiotherapist in order to make sure that you are involved in an exercise program to prevent the risk of osteoarthritis from happening later in life.

So if you’re interested in preventing ACL injuries from happening, it’s important to speak to your doctor and your physiotherapist to get you on an exercise program that will minimize the chance of ACL injuries happening on the field.
