Quadriceps injury? Buy thigh brace!

Like the hamstring, it can also happen that the quadriceps are affected. The quadriceps are the muscles at the front of the thigh.

What is a quadriceps injury?

The quadriceps are the muscles that are located at the front of the thigh. The quadriceps allow you to lift the leg up into the hip joint and stretch into the knee joint. The quadriceps is a collective name of several muscles and are formed by: “m.rectus femoris”, “m.vastus lateralis”, “m.vastus medialis” and “m.vastus intermedius”.

There is talk of a quadriceps injury when the fibers of the muscles tear. The cracks often occur at the transition from muscle to tendon. This transition is fragile and therefore the risk of muscle tearing is greatest here.

Causes of the quadriceps injury?

An injury to the quadriceps can result from sudden acceleration or explosive force. Think of an outlet. Often the injury occurs at the beginning of a training or competition. The muscle is not yet warm enough and during explosive acceleration the muscle can tear. It is also possible that the muscle tears at the end of a workout. The muscle is tired or overloaded and therefore cannot handle all the changes in strength. This can cause the muscle to tear. Sports are therefore no longer possible.

Symptoms and complaints with a quadriceps injury.

There are several complaints you can experience:

  • Pain in the top of the thigh, generally after exercise.
  • Stretching the knee against resistance is painful
  • Stretching the muscle is painful.
  • There is a loss of strength.
  • When bleeding, there may be a dark bruise on the front of the leg
  • Swelling on the front of the leg visible and palpable.
  • Cramps may form in the torn muscle.
  • Pressing on the muscle is painful.

Treating quadriceps injury? Buy thigh brace?

The recovery from an average quadriceps muscle tear can take 6 to 8 weeks. During the first two weeks it is important to rest and move the muscle slowly. Try to avoid explosive movements, the chance of greater muscle tearing is high. If the muscle is completely torn off, it is wise to operate the muscle within a week.
