The patient reports feeling a sudden pulling pain in the front of the thigh after attempting to sprint, "missing" a kick, or suddenly stopping.

Cause

Sudden contraction of the quadriceps may result in a simple pull or a full rupture.  Some predispositions include tight quadriceps (or not properly warming up prior to a sport activity), imbalance between the quadriceps of the opposite leg, or a short leg.
