A muscle is a connective tissue that can contract. Muscles can move joints to create motion and can absorb energy from the loading of joints (as in walking, running, or landing from a jump)
A muscle strain is a tear of the fibers of a muscle (as opposed to a sprain, which is a tear of a ligament). Most muscle strains are treated without surgery with a combination of rest, medication, and exercises.
