Strain & Sprain

Strain is an injury to a tendon or muscle resulting from overuse or trauma and sprain is a stretching or tearing of ligaments. Alexandra Turcios, Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner with Baptist Health Neuroscience Center, recommends if anyone suffers from one of the two conditions, he must rest at home, then put ice packs, take anti-inflammatory drugs and be off his feet.
