The next day after retraining muscle soreness, feel not too much force ...... Is the muscle growing or is it a muscle strain? Shouldn't I rest for a while? The reason for the muscle soreness is clear before you make a decision!
Do I have a strain or soreness?
After training, soreness starts to occur the next day, we call this phenomenon delayed soreness, delayed soreness is the discomfort caused by small injuries after training. This small injury is the starting point for muscle growth, and the small injury allows the body to heal itself and grow stronger muscle fibers. And this kind of soreness is usually able to continue training. But if it's a strain, it's not good, strains are divided into mild, moderate and severe muscle strains.
Mild strain: The muscle fibers are mildly damaged and will recover in about two to three weeks. Pain will be felt when pressing or exerting force.
Moderate strain: Moderate damage to the muscle fibers, but the fibers are not completely broken and will recover in about three to six weeks.
Severe strains: complete rupture of the muscle, usually requiring surgical repair and healing time of three months or more
The most common confusion is between mild strain and delayed soreness, so how do you tell the difference? There is a difference between the two if you feel more carefully. Muscle soreness will usually feel sore and tight, with a feeling that the muscles can't be pulled apart and usually only every other day, lasting less than a week. The muscle strain will feel tingling, hot, and a feeling of weakness. Immediately after the injury, or a few hours later, the duration will be more than a week.
Now we know that the simple muscle soreness is still able to continue to exercise, that exercise need to pay attention to what?
When the muscles are still sore, because there are still small injuries and discomfort, affecting sports performance is certain, it is not advisable to exercise for too long or do high-intensity sports, if you do not pay proper attention, a careless may really become a sports injury need to rest a few weeks! Finally, we also want to remind you that although the non-strain pain is able to continue to exercise, but muscle growth is required to repair in order to grow, continuous damage plus the accumulation of fatigue will only cause a vicious cycle, so do not forget to moderate rest!
What should I do if I have a strain
If the injury is severe, or if there is immobility, open wounds, or loss of consciousness, then seek professional medical attention immediately. For minor strains, it is not recommended to rest completely after the injury. After a few days of injury, it is recommended to move around as much as you can. Why do you say that?
1,Do not let the muscles atrophy because they are not moving.
2,Allow the brain to update the data of the affected area at all times to prevent it from being overprotected by the brain after recovery.
3, Moderate activity can increase blood circulation and help self-healing.
4,A little movement can make the tissue grow more neatly and beautifully. For example, stretch the injured muscle slightly, for about 30 seconds each time, and repeat 5 times. The injured muscle should be trained slowly from lighter strength to heavier strength and should not feel any special pain during the process.
Today's part of the strains will be briefly discussed with you here, the strains are still very profound, so I will help you to do more detailed introduction when I have the opportunity to further study and compile a set of information! If you really want to know, there is almost always a lot of literature on muscle strains in the rehabilitation departments of hospitals, so you might as well try to study it!
