Your doctor will take your history, perform a physical examination and perform a bedside ultrasound examination to confirm the diagnosis and assess the extent of the damage to the muscle. Sometimes further investigations, such as a MRI, may be required to assess for other soft tissue damage. This will give us an estimation of how long recovery would take. We can prescribe treatment to reduce pain and swelling, restore range of motion and facilitate healing of the muscle. This includes physical rehabilitation with a progressive plan to return to activity.
