OVERVIEW

Quadriceps Muscle Strains

This injury is often caused by running sprints or stops that are too quick. A muscle strain can cause tenderness or a bulge in the tender area of your thigh. Lifting the thigh (a straight-leg raise), climbing/descending stairs or getting out of a seated place can exacerbate the pain.
