The quadriceps are made up of four muscle groups (vastus medialis, vastus lateralis, vastus intermedius, and rectus memories). The most common strained quadriceps is the rectum memoirs.
Quadriceps strains are most commonly seen in football, rugby, soccer, track, basketball, hockey and other sports that require repetitive sprinting, kicking, and jumping.
Determining the degree of strain is identified through Grade I (minor muscle fiber disruption), Grade II (more extensive tearing of the muscle fiber associated with hemorrhage) and Grade III (full tears of the musculotendinous junction).
Once an athlete has progressed to pain-free motion, he or she can begin isometric exercises at full extension and progress to 90 degrees of knee flexion. Gentle active stretching starts with an athlete lying on his or her back and flexing the knee as tolerated.
An athlete’s return to sport is when range of motion is full, pain-free and sprinting without difficulty. Return to full activity generally occurs two to three weeks after injury.
