have a muscle strain vs strain a muscle

how do you say?

After massage you might have a strain muscle, … you might strain a muscle, possibly you might have a muscle strain.

I reckon, the first one sounds naturally.

I’d say: After massage you might have muscle strain.

thanks :slight_smile:

I thought massage was meant to stop muscle strain.

Not really, Beees. Massage could give rise to muscle strain due to the pressing. The muscle will finally get relaxed just like after exercise to take up the expected effect.
