Sprains and Strains are among some of the most common injuries during sports competition. The question is, what exactly is the difference? Technically a sprain is a stretch or tear of a ligament. A strain is an injury to a muscle and/or a tendon. When these injuries occur the most common and useful treatment is rest, ice, compression, and elevation (or R.I.C.E.). Usually this will help minimize the damage. It is important in all but mild cases for a medical doctor to evaluate the injury and establish a treatment and rehabilitation plan.
