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.

Father and Daughter Having Fun
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.
