Sprains & Strains

Sprains and strains are injuries to the musculoskeletal system that are commonly diagnosed conditions. A sprain is an injury to the tendons around a joint, whereas a strain is a stretch or tear of a muscle or tendon in the area where it is turning into a muscle. They can cause considerable pain and discomfort, significantly limit activity and mobility, and adversely affect the overall quality of life. Since sprains indicate an injury to a ligament and strains involve tears in muscle tissue, Chiropractic care is an appropriate and highly effective treatment route to take for these injuries.

The ultimate goal of Chiropractic care is precisely that – treating disorders involving joints, muscles, or ligaments.

Sprains And Strains: What Is The Difference?


Ligaments are tough bands of connective tissue that surround your joints. A membrane that is filled with synovial fluid also encases your joints. The role of this fluid is to lubricate your joint and help to nourish, support, and provide cushioning against impact. When an injury causes small tears to your ligaments, your joint suffers a sprain.  Ankles, knees, and wrists are the most common sites of sprains. 


The connective tissues that attach your muscles to your bones are called tendons. A muscle strain refers to an injury sustained by your muscles or tendons. The most common areas to experience muscle strain are your calf muscles, groins, and hamstrings.
