Sprain and Strain Injury

Sprains and strains are two types of soft tissue injury or damage. A sprain is a joint injury that involves tearing of the ligaments and joint capsule. A strain is an injury to muscle or tendons.

Symptoms Of A Sprain Can Include:

  • pain around the affected joint
  • being unable to use the joint normally or being unable to put weight on it
  • swelling
  • bruising
  • tenderness

Symptoms Of A Muscle Strain Can Include:

  • Pain in the affected muscle
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Muscle spasms (when the muscles contract tightly and painfully)
  • Loss of some, or all, of the function in the affected muscle
  • A blood collecting under the skin at the site of the strain – this is known as a hematoma, and it may look like a large, dark-red bruise

TREATMENT FOR SPRAINS AND STRAINS –

Treatment may include:

  • exercises, under the guidance of your doctor or another health professional, to promote healing, strength, and flexibility.
  • manual techniques, such as mobilization and massage.
  • electrotherapy.
  • pain-relieving medication (talk to your doctor or pharmacist before taking any medications, as they can sometimes disrupt the healing of soft tissue injuries).
