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.

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.
