Sports Medicine

A quadriceps injury is a tear or strain to the quadriceps muscles, which are located at the front of the thigh. The quadriceps muscles are responsible for extending the knee and helping to stabilize the patella (kneecap).

Symptoms of a Quadriceps Injury

The symptoms of a quadriceps injury can vary depending on the severity of the tear or strain. Some common symptoms include:

  • Pain in the front of the thigh
  • Swelling and bruising
  • Difficulty extending the knee
  • Weakness in the quadriceps muscles
  • Loss of range of motion in the knee

Types of Quadriceps Injuries

There are three main types of quadriceps injuries:

  • Grade 1: This is the mildest type of injury, involving a minimal amount of tearing to the muscle fibers.
  • Grade 2: This is a moderate type of injury, involving more tearing to the muscle fibers.
  • Grade 3: This is the most severe type of injury, involving a complete tear of the muscle fibers.

Treatment for Quadriceps Injuries

The treatment for quadriceps injuries will vary depending on the severity of the injury. For mild to moderate injuries, the RICE protocol is often recommended. This stands for:

  • Rest: Avoid activities that cause pain.
  • Ice: Apply ice packs to the injured area for 20 minutes at a time, several times a day.
  • Compression: Wrap the injured area with an elastic bandage to reduce swelling.
  • Elevation: Elevate the injured leg above your heart to reduce swelling.

Over-the-counter pain relievers, such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen, may also be helpful.

In more severe cases, physical therapy may be recommended to help regain strength and range of motion in the knee. For complete tears of the quadriceps tendon, surgery may be necessary to repair the tendon.
