Last week I injured my quad on the outside part of the leg. During a mountain bike race, I went down hard and my outer left quad absorbed most of my body weight as it hit a big rock. I had problems walking, and a week later still limping, pretty bad bruising, and a ‘dent’ with a slight bulge below it in my quad. Still sore to the touch. Did the R.I.C.E. thing as well. Do I need to get medical attention to this? I figured it was just a bad bruise, but read up online about contusion tears so it got my thinking it might me worse than I thought.
