WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO HELP WITH PAIN FROM A QUAD TEAR?
A quadricep strain or tear, although less common than other musculoskeletal injuries, can be experienced from athletes or in those who are constantly active. It can range from a minor ache to something more serious with common symptoms of pain, swelling, loss of strength and difficulties with moving the affected leg.
Bauerfeind’s high-quality supports or braces with medical-grade compression target the symptoms and instabilities associated with pain from a quad tear or strain. The MyoTrain thigh brace is dedicated to minimise the pain and tension you feel in your quadricep muscles. The velcro straps and soft knit provides optimal compression for increased blood flow to allow for a comfortable wear as you make your way to recovery.
HOW TO HELP MINIMISE OR MANAGE QUAD PAIN WHEN IT IS TORN OR STRAINED?
- Physical therapy. Strengthening exercises prescribed from your physiotherapist or exercise physiologist help to build your quad muscles and prevent risks of re-injury.
- Stretching. Lessen stiffness and reduce pain through stretching exercises.
- Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications and analgesic may be helpful for pain management.
- Support and brace. A Bauerfeind brace offers enhanced stability, proprioception and medical-grade compression, which targets specific joints and relieves pain.
Play it safe: Consult a doctor if you experience unusually intense and persistent tendonitis pain.
