Placing too much demand on your muscles such as lifting heavy objects, moving quickly when playing sports or overdoing yard work can lead to a muscle strain, pull or tear. The damage can be to one or a group of muscles or it can involve a tear in the attaching tendons. Muscle aches can also be from injury to the ligaments and/or the fascia which is the soft tissue that connects muscles, bones, and organs. An injury can occur from a single stressful incident, or it may come on gradually due to repetitive activity. The shoulders and low back are common areas that can become sore due to overuse of the muscles.
