Strains and Muscle Tears in San Diego, CA
Strains involve the muscles and tendons. Tendons allow the muscle to move the joint.
A strain or a tear can be mild or can be very serious. Get it checked out as soon as you can by a doctor to make sure you treat it correctly.
Injury to these structures generally result in pain with movement of the joint across which the tendon passes, and with force extended by that muscle.
