WHAT THE COMMUNITY HAS TO SAY ABOUT THIS INJURY

Natasha– I had a quad strain on my left and right quads. It was hard to walk and sometimes go up the stairs but my track season didn’t start at this time so it didn’t get worse thankfully. What I did was stretch (hamstring lifts, squats, clams , rolling out) and ice every day and taking it easy and I was able to run again about a week or so of doing that.
