Diagnosis

The doctor will ask about your symptoms and medical history. A physical exam will be done.
Muscle strains are graded according to their severity:
  • Grade 1—Some stretching with micro-tearing of muscle fibers.
  • Grade 2—Partial tearing of muscle fibers.
  • Grade 3—Complete tearing of muscle fibers. This may also be called a rupture or avulsion.
