Hi, How are you? Muscle herniations, especially in the lower extremities, are an uncommon complication of muscle injury. This can be due to blunt trauma or muscle hypertrophy due to exercise. The usual treatment for a hernia is surgery to repair the opening in the muscle wall. Treatment will also depend on the location, extent, age and medical history of patient. Talk to your doctor about this for proper management suited for you. Untreated hernias can cause pain and other health problems. Take care and regards.
