Health Tip: Did You Bruise a Muscle?

Health Tip: Did You Bruise a Muscle?

08/26/14

(HealthDay News) -- Most of the time, a bruised muscle isn't a serious injury. But it can be a painful nuisance, especially among athletes and others who exercise frequently.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons says common symptoms of a muscle bruise include:

  • Pain and swelling of the muscle.
  • Reduced range of motion.
  • Blue discoloration of the skin.
  • Muscle stiffness and weakness.
