Strains vs. Sprains: What’s the Difference?

If you’re like many people, you might not know the difference between a strain and a sprain. A strain refers to a stretched or torn muscle or tendon (which is the tissue that connects muscles to bones). A sprain, on the other hand, refers to a stretched or torn ligament (which is the tissue that connects one bone to another). Although strains and sprains can cause many of the same symptoms—including pain, swelling, and difficulty moving the injured body part—strains can also lead to weakness and muscle spasms.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
