Chiropractic for Quad Muscles

(Most Health Insurance Accepted – Call For Details)

Quad strains are usually a sudden injury due to a strong force.
Kicking and running downhill are big culprits, but anything that
stretches the front of the thigh suddenly can
lead to slight to severe pain.

Muscles of the upper leg (Quads – front of the upper leg, Hamstrings – back of the upper leg, and Groin – inside of the upper leg) are susceptible to injury through both overuse and sudden movement.

Each of these muscles are used daily in walking, going from a sitting to standing position, and any athletic endeavor that includes use of the legs. Even after a strained muscle has stopped causing you pain, it may not be structurally healed optimally. If you continue to ignore and press through these symptoms, expect to feel little twinges here and there until the primary muscle involved is addressed properly.

Self-check: Signs of incomplete healing include: weakness with continued use, isolated soreness in that muscle after a strenuous activity, chronic re-injury to the same muscle or leg.

What are Symptoms of Quad Strains?

Quad strains typically cause local pain directly where the muscle injury occurs. Walking, standing, straightening the knee and direct pressure on the injured portion of the muscle all cause pain.

What Causes Quad Strains?

Quad strains are usually a sudden injury due to a strong force. Kicking and running downhill are big culprits, but anything that stretches the front of the thigh suddenly can lead to slight to severe pain.

How do you treat Quad Strains?

Addressing the site of injury using A.R.T. is the initial and easy part of treatment. Rehabilitating the quad to withstand the forces we put on it daily can be tricky. Identifying the right course of stretching and exercise after exam is key to resolving the injury.

Did you know?

The quadriceps are actually a muscle group made up of, you guessed it, four muscles, but they all use the same tendon to connect through your kneecap and into the lower leg.

Thigh & Groin Overview

» Hip Flexor Muscles

Sitting (as many of us do for work) predisposes us to straining this muscle due to the frequent shortened length.

» Femoral Nerve Entrapment

Pain in the front of the hip running down the front of the leg and into the knee as well as weakness and giving out of the leg are the most common symptoms.

» Quad Muscles

Muscles of the upper leg (Quads – front of the upper leg, Hamstrings – back of the upper leg, and Groin – inside of the upper leg) are susceptible to injury through both overuse and sudden movement.

» Lateral Femoral Cutaneous Nerve Entrapment

Nerve symptoms (numbness, tingling, burning) on the outside of the thigh from the waist to the knee are the main symptoms of this condition.
