Strains and Sprains

Strains are an injury that can occur to either the tendon or the belly of a particular muscle that can result in pain. This results from an overloading or overstretch moment that can result in a partial tear. Strains are often referred to as pulled muscles. Sprains are an injury that involves an overstretch or tearing of the ligaments surrounding the joint. This can happen when a joint is moved into an unnatural position that exceeds its normal range of motion.
