Sprains & Strains Treatment

A sprain is the tearing or stretching of ligaments, which are the short bands of flexible, fibrous connective tissue that connects bone to bone, bone to cartilage or holds a joint together. A strain is also a tear or stretch, but in a muscle or a tendon, which is the flexible cord of fibrous connective tissue that connects a muscle to a bone.

What Causes Sprains?
