Hematoma muscular

Un hematoma muscular ocurre cuando parte del cuerpo es golpeada directamente por un objeto, lesionando las fibras subyacentes del músculo y el tejido conectivo sin romper la piel. Un hematoma muscular puede causar dolor, hinchazón y un rango de movimiento limitado en la articulación ubicada cerca de la lesión. Un hematoma muscular puede tardar días o meses para sanar, dependiendo del grado de la lesión.
