A strain occurs to muscle or tendon when the tissue is overstretched, resulting in damage. Strains are graded from grade 1 (mild) to grade 3 (rupture), with the extent of damage relative to the degree of strain. Whilst a large proportion of strains occur due to sudden onset ie. pulled muscle, repetitive strain injuries are also common. In growing adolescents whom lead active lifestyles, a proportion will develop pain as tendons and muscles fail to keep up with growing bones (growing pains). They can result in significant pain and loss of function and should be addressed as early as possible.
A sprain is an injury to a ligament caused by excessive stretching, which may lead to instability of the joint. Sprains are graded from grade 1 (mild) to grade 3 (rupture), with the extent of damage relative to the degree of sprain. Whilst ankle, knee and wrist sprains are most common, any joint in the body can be affected.
