    Pop in upper quadracep area
    MiamiJohn posted:
    I was working out this morning doing my ususal leg routine. Machine squats followed by machine lunges. However today I did walking lunges with 20lb kettle bells in each hand. On my 3 set as I was nearing the end, I heard/felt a "pop" in my upper quad area just below my hip, which was followed by a "tingling" sensation about 4" below the area where the "pop" occured. Any idea or suggestions as to what has happened? I am not in pain so to speak only some discomfort in the area. Thank you.
    Mary Ann Wilmarth, PT, DPT, OCS responded:
    Anytime you hear a pop there is potential for some tearing of soft tissue, this can be muscle, tendon, or ligament depending on the area injured. This can range from microtears to larger ones. The tingling can indicate nerve involvement.

    In the short-term you should ice and rest.

    I would recommend seeing your physician or physical therapist to have an evaluation of the area so that they can advise you regarding appropriate care and rehabilitation.

    Good luck.

    Dr. Wilmarth
