Quad impact damage

DOI: 5-1-07
Description: Impact to front of thigh by Pick-Up bumper AND back of thigh impacted on rim of RV Storage cubicle

PT began about 1 mo after impact with massage and strengthening exercises.

Currently - Leg is functional, BUT muscle mass that goes from outside front upper thigh to inside lower thigh gets very tender on the upper edge after a day of walking activity.

Muscle mass "feels" to me like a thick, wide strip steak when I rub my leg.

1. Will the numb/painful feelings ever stop?
2. Will compression support to the muscle mass help prevent the tenderness at the end of an active day?

Silicone inserts leave the epicondyle pressure-free and provide an intermittent compression to the soft tissue of the joint, leading to increased circulation, thus aiding in the resorption of swelling and edema.
