Melissa Prestipino, DPT

What is the difference between a Strain and a Sprain?
Sprains and Strains are among the most common sports injuries. A sprain is a stretch or tear of a ligament (fibrous connective tissue that joins the end of one bone to another.)
A Strain is an injury to a muscle or a tendon (fibrous cord of tissue that attach muscle to bone.)
