Have you suffered a sprain or muscle tear? Although people regularly suffer straightforward sprains and strains, a serious muscle tear can be as serious as a broken or fractured bone. Generally, muscle damage can be split into four categories which reflect the severity of the injury. Whilst you may be able to recover quickly with minimal medical intervention from a light sprain, a more serious muscle tear could require weeks or months of rehabilitative physical therapy.
Athletes and keen sportsmen and women are most commonly affected by serious muscle injuries, and they can affect anyone in a variety of ways. Whilst this type of injury can affect your ability to play sports for some time, it can also have an impact on your ability to perform everyday tasks.
If for example, you tear a muscle in your leg, you may need to use crutches to get around for some time. This may prevent you from driving, or working depending on the type of job that you do. Similarly, you may find it hard to use public transport or to care for yourself whilst you’re recovering.
Whilst it’s easy to dismiss this type of injury until you’ve suffered it yourself, it can be extremely debilitating, painful and uncomfortable for the sufferer. As people are generally unable to exercise for quite some time after suffering this type of injury, they can require extensive physiotherapy once the area has healed in order to rebuild muscle tissue.
If you’ve been hurt in this way and the injury wasn’t your fault, you may be keen to seek redress from whoever was responsible and you could do this by using a specialist injury solicitor in Mauchline to obtain compensation.
