I play soccer and was invited for several tryouts semi pro leagues, and then a guy broke my foot. After 6 months out with the broke foot, I came back and started training again. During a normal training routine I felt a POP in my thigh (right quad).
I was able to walk off the field, and had no swelling or bruising. However it hurt to bend or raise my leg. After two months I was able to run normally and even sprint and kick the ball. I first started doing elliptical machine and lite jogging and then did a small scrimmage, nothing extreme. During one training I played center mid, but I didn't sprint or play defense, because I was wanting to just take it easy.
I lifted my leg (backwards as to kick the ball) and it popped again!!! Now it is hurt again!
Do I just sit out for 2-3 months? There is no bruising, and I can walk and run, but I can't lift or bend the leg up or back to the normal extreme. When do I start doing strength training?
Needless to say this has hurt me greatly...any help would be great.
- I am doing a high protein diet, with shakes
- Leg wrap most of the day
- Heat therapy for 25 minutes at a time for about 1-2 hours dally
- Messaging it
- Potassium pills
- Ointment for strains
please I need to fix this...
