In brief: Not rare
Myositis ossificans can occur with any muscle injury that produces an inflammatory response.
It often occurs and resolves without us knowing it. The more severe ones are associated with bigger injuries, so we follow them more closely. Since it is not harmful, we encourage stretching and rest to give it a chance to resolve or play its course.
