Generally triggered by excessive squatting or lunging motions, quadriceps strains can interfere with your ability to stand or walk. These types of injuries often cause sudden, sharp pain at the front of the thigh and are brought on by overworking the leg muscles.
If you are experiencing symptoms of a quadriceps strain, contact one of our Primary Care Sports Medicine Physicians to make an appointment.
Most commonly found in cross country running, jumping or sprinting.
Primary Care Sports Medicine Specialists are physicians with significant specialized training in both the treatment and prevention of sports-related illness and injury.
