2. Muscle Injury Types
This chapter will review the different types of muscle injuries. In addition, it will review the Microtrauma at the site of injury, the mechanism of injury, the symptoms of injury, the physiological repair process of muscle and its risk for further injury.
3. Muscle Strain Macrotrauma
This chapter will go over the Macrotrauma of muscle strain. It will provide valuable clinical information on how to create an optimal healing environment for the muscle to get better. Early treatment strategies will be provided for the clinician.
