- Abdominal Muscle Strain Exercises
- En Espanol
An abdominal (belly) muscle strain is when your abdominal muscle is suddenly pulled or twisted. When this happens a tiny tear occurs in the muscle. Strained muscles happen more easily when muscles are not stretched or warmed up before working out. Sometimes they happen when the muscle is overused. Ask your caregiver for more information about other ways to treat your injury.
Do's and Don'ts:
Caregivers may tell you to remain pain-free as you use your abdomen more. If your injury does not improve, call your caregiver.
