The best form of prevention is to have strong muscles and at the same time elastic, in addition to performing progressive exercises to have the muscles ready for the solicitation to which we are going to submit.
Diagnosis of fibrillar rupture
The diagnosis is made under the suspicion of the injury when there is a jerk or acute muscle pain that, generally, causes limitation of the function of the affected muscle.
Today we are fortunate to confirm the injury and estimate the severity thanks to ultrasound and / or magnetic resonance imaging.
Treatment of fibrillar rupture
Currently, if there is a large hematoma due to a significant rupture we can perform evacuation of the same in an echo-guided way.
Obviously, we must protect the muscle from stress similar to the cause of the injury over a period of 2 to 6 weeks.
Early physical therapy is essential. In our protocol of treatment we mainly use tecarterapia and manual therapy.
