About Sprains and Strains

Sprains and strains are common injuries most of us go through. They can be caused by twists, falls, or general overuse of muscles.

A sprain is a stretch or tear of a ligament often caused by trauma. A strain, on the other hand, is an injury of a muscle or tendon.

These injuries are painful, especially in the acute stage, and cause a lot of swelling. Strains and sprains are categorized into:

  • Grade I: mild sprain or strain caused by ovestreching or minor tearing
  • Grade II: moderate sprain or strain where muscle or ligament is partially torn
  • Grade III: severe sprain or strain where a mucle, tendon, or ligament is comptely ruptured or torn.

Physiotherapy for sprains and strains focuses on decreasing the symptoms of the injuries and restoring muscle and joint movement and function through specialized techniques and therapeutic exercises.
