Quad pain is often caused by a direct blow to the muscle during sporting activities.

If the quad muscles have torn (muscle strain) the site of pain is usually well localised in the front of the thigh. Muscle strains occur in the mid belly of the muscle following an increase in running speed or extra distance kicking.

If the pain is variable and not clearly localised it may be referred pain from the hip joint, the sacroiliac joint, the lumbar spine or nerve structures.

Physiotherapy treatment at Manchester Physio following a quad injury will be aimed at:
  • Reducing pain and swelling
  • Improving range of movement and preventing stiffness
  • Improving muscle strength
  • Preventing re-injury
  • Promoting recovery
  • Facilitating return to sporting activities as soon as possible
At Manchester Physio an initial assessment with one of our specialised physiotherapists will identify the cause of your quad pain and an individualised treatment program will be developed which may include:
  • Ice to reduce swelling
  • Ultrasound to promote healing
  • Passive and active stretching exercises to lengthen soft tissue
  • Soft tissue massage to relieve tension and pain
  • Structured exercise program including an improved warm up, aerobic training and cool down to get you back to your activities safely and effectively
  • Muscle strengthening exercises for the trunk, hip and leg muscles once pain and swelling is reduced
Your physiotherapist at Manchester Physio will also advise you on how to pace your activity so that you return to sport and everyday as soon as possible and reduce the risk of re-injury.
