Sprains and Strains
Overextension or overexertion of a muscle, tendon or ligament can cause a sprain or strain. Though they sound minor, many people find recovery from a sprain or strain to be longer and more challenging than recovering from a fracture or clean break.
Diagnosis and Treatment
Care always begins with a thorough assessment, to evaluate the likely cause and extent of orthopedic pain. Your assessment includes a physical examination, medical history and usually some tests, including range of motion, sensitivity and, often, imaging studies.
Care is always personalized to your needs but may include:
- Medical management
- Physical therapy
