What Is Muscle Strain?

Muscle strain, or a pulled muscle, typically happens when your muscle is overworked, stretched, or torn. It can happen from excessive exercise or demanding physical activity, or you can simply strain a muscle by reaching too far or lifting something too heavy. Each person experiences muscle strain in different ways and the causes are varied. This means that any effective treatment for muscle pain needs to be customized.
