About

A grade 1 muscle strain is damage to the fibres of your triceps muscle. Muscles are made up of thousands of fibres and the grade of the strain reflects how many of those fibres have torn. A grade 1 strain only has a small amount of muscle fibres torn and the remainder of the healthy fibres are typically capable of carrying out normal function While the damaged area heals. If your injury has occurred within the last 7 days, it is more likely that your pain is due to the inflammation present. This inflammation stops any bleeding in the damaged area and allows the healing process to start, rather than a reflection of the level of strain that has occurred. This initial process is known as the acute phase and typically lasts around a week and then starts to settle down. The damaged element of your muscle will typically take approximately 6 weeks to heal. However, there should be enough healthy muscle fibres to compensate for this and it is not unusual for you to be back to full function prior to this. The Heal My Injury Treatment Plan has been prescribed to help reduce the inflammation, improve function, and rebuild strength to the strained area.
