Muscle Strains vs. Sprains
First things first—what is the difference between a muscle strain and a sprain? These two injuries are similar in nature, but they affect different tissues. A strain is a tearing or overstretching of a muscle or tendon, which is fibrous tissue that connects muscles to bones. A sprain is a tearing or overstretching of ligaments—thick bands of tissue that join bones to form a joint.
Hamstring muscles and muscles in the lower back are particularly susceptible to strains, while ankle sprains are the most common type of sprain injury. No matter where you’re feeling the pain, though, it’s important to visit us for prompt treatment if your symptoms don’t improve after a few hours of implementing self-care measures, such as resting and placing ice on the affected area to reduce discomfort.
