Our user asked: "Hi. I recently pulled a muscle in my back which I think is my lower trapezius while I was lifting weights. It has been a week and although the pain has gotten better, it still hurts. How do I know if I have scar tissue in the muscle?"

Ask a PT Response: "Scar tissue is a normal repsone sto healing. Pulling a muscle should normally not generate a significant amount of scar tissue. You could have trigger points (areas of tenderness/knots) which you are confusing with scar tissue. These can usually be worked out with manual therapy and stretching. I hope this helps."
