What is Muscle Contusions/Myositis Ossificans?

A contusion refers to damaged tissue as a result of direct trauma in which capillaries have been damaged resulting in a haematoma formation (bruise). Myositis ossificans may develop following an inadequately healed contusion injury of the quadriceps muscle and involves the formation of calcification (bony deposits) within the muscle belly at the site of the original contusion. A contusion of the quadriceps typically presents as swelling, discolouration and decreased knee flexibility following a direct blow, while a painful lump felt at the site several weeks post injury is typically indicative of myositis ossificans.
