Muscle contusions, or bruises, are the second most common sports injuries behind strains. They are caused by direct blows to a muscle, like being hit by a ball or a tennis racquet.
Most muscle contusions are minor and don’t even require you to stop your activities. However, severe muscle contusions cause deep tissue damage and can take several months of rest to recover.
