Muscles. Function of Muscle. Muscle tissue is responsible for all body movements. This includes body motion as in walking but also organ movement such as dilation of blood vessels or heart contraction.
A motor unit consists of the nerve (neuron) and all the fibers connected to it. When a neuron is stimulated all of its fibers will contract completely. This called the All or None Principal
Rest – it takes time for the muscle to repair
Ice – helps reduce the swelling and pain
Compression – helps hold muscle in line and reduce the pain and swelling
Return to action when function is no longer impaired.
Returning too soon may result in re injury
