yea, could also just be a bad cramp, or maybe even just muscle soreness.

I also love how tarzanman tries to correct everyone and then goes ahead and gives misinformation. Strains, "pulls", and "tears" are all the same thing... a strain. Here's some info to try a little more self-diagnosis. If there was a direct trauma, it could be a contusion, but you said you felt it after riding, so I doubt that.

- local tissue trauma to the muscle, musculotendinous unit or the muscle tendon from an excessive forcible contraction or stretch

First Degree Strain
- slight swelling
- slight loss of strength
- slight loss of flexibility

Second Degree Strain
- measurable swelling
- general pain
- moderate loss of strength
- moderate loss of flexibility
- obvious ecchymosis

Third Degree Strain
- apparent swelling
- severe pain
- complete loss of strength
- obvious ecchymosis
- muscle bunching
- usually hear a “snap”

Strains can be evaluated by assessing the following 4 parameteres:
- circumference
- extensibility (placing a muscle on stretch)
- contractability (muscle strength grading 0-5)
- palpation

5 – (100%) normal response; can move through ROM with normal resistance
4 – (75%) good response; can move through ROM with less than normal resistance
3 – (50) fair response; can move through ROM one time with force of gravity
2 – (25%) poor response; can move through ROM once with no gravity
1 – (5-10%) trace response; trace of contraction with no movement
0 – (0%) no response; total paralysis

The minimum contractibility rating you want to have before returning to action is a 4+

basically, if you think you pulled a muscle - you didn't

you'll know exactly when it happens

I don't think you'll ever be able to snowboard again!

When the fuck did we get ice cream?

Been there done that...

Dont sit on your ass all day and think its gonna get better just by resting it. You gotta walk around and also add some light stretching in there. And Icy/ wont do anything for it, it will just make it feel better for that moment.

Rememeber- LIGHT stretching, only go to where there is mild discomfort. You will be fine in 3 or 4 days.

Get a hooker and you'll be fine the next day.

Well except for the crabs, herpes, vd, and possibly aids....

It doesn't sound like you'll have problems with it for long.
