Thigh muscle strain or tear is an injury most often occurring in middle-aged men. If the force required from the muscle exceeds the force the muscle is able to tolerate, a structural damage to the muscle occurs. The overstressed part of the muscle can be strained, or in the worst scenario, torn. Both cases manifest as a severe burning pain in the injured muscle. This overload of the muscle fibres often occurs also when the body is tired or dehydrated. Muscle fibres are greatly overloaded and additional stress further increases their tone. This situation results in the development of pain, blood clots due to a tear of the surrounding blood vessels, swelling and malfunction. For support and prevention, you can use thigh bandages.
