It doesn’t matter if you’re a professional level athlete or enjoy taking a jog around the block once a week, you never want to pull a muscle. Not only is this uncomfortable, but it can also keep you away from the activities you love for an extended period of time.

While a pulled muscle is always a possibility, there are some basic steps you can take to prevent this injury:

·      Strength training: Weak muscles are more likely to pull than strong ones. So, if you get into the habit of strength training your entire body, you can strengthen your muscles and lessen the likelihood of injury.

·      Stretch: By stretching, you reduce tension in muscles, which improves range of motion. Subsequently, there’s less chance that you’ll pull a muscle. Remember to stretch both before and after exercise.

·      Warm-up: It only takes a few minutes to warm-up before exercise, but it can go a long way in helping prevent a pulled muscle (among other injuries).

Doing these things will help you prevent a pulled muscle, and all the discomfort that follows.

If you suffer this injury, get off your feet and treat yourself immediately. From ice to rest to massage, there are many ways to speed up the recovery process.
