Key Treatment

Treatment of an acute muscle strain involves ice application to limit pain and swelling, relative rest and protection from more significant injury, gentle stretching to restore flexibility, and progressive rehabilitation through isometric, concentric, and finally eccentric strengthening exercises before returning to sports-specific activities (SOR: C).

Eccentric strengthening programs can be effective for patients with chronic Achilles or patellar tendinopathy (Alfredson et al., 1998; Purdam et al., 2004) (SOR: B).

Novel therapies using autologous growth factor injections (platelet-rich plasma) show favorable results in the treatment of chronic tendinopathy (Mishra and Pavelko, 2006; Sanchez et al., 2009) (SOR: C).
