Not really!: A solatary muscle is rarely primarily inflamed but traumatically inflamed. Because it has been strained. But tendons attaching to a muscle that have been sprained, make the attached muscle feel pain. The course is do to the severity. Initiall rx is always rest, ice, compression, elevation. Afterwards, warmth and nsaids are used. If pain last for more than two weeks see your doctor.
