Soft-tissue injuries and muscle tears occur frequently in athletes. The mainstay of treatment in most cases is nonoperative management and aggressive rehabilitation. Most injuries result from direct trauma or contusion or indirect stretch injury. It is important to keep in mind the possibility of other potentially more serious conditions, such as compartment syndrome. More research is needed to define optimal treatment patterns and potential strategies for injury prevention.
