Immobilisation – Immobilising strained muscles and more

 
 

The advice for muscle strains can be different. Depending on your injury, you may be advised to keep your injured muscle still for the first few days. Your doctor may arrange for a brace, cast or splint, to help keep it as still as possible.

 
 

The aim of immobilising the muscle is to allow it to start healing, so you can move it without tearing or pulling it again in the same place. After a few days you will probably be advised to start using the muscle again.
