What is a strain?

You’ve probably heard of sprains, which refer to stretched or torn ligaments (the fibrous tissues that hold bones together). Strains are a little bit different. Instead of torn ligaments, they involve stretched or torn muscles or tendons (the tissues that connect bones to muscles). Muscles and tendons can overstretch or tear when they’re twisted or pulled too far. Strains frequently occur when someone performs the same motion over and over, especially if it involves heavy lifting. They’re also common in contact sports such as football and hockey.

What are the symptoms of a strain?

Strains can cause a wide array of unpleasant symptoms, which may range from mild to severe depending on the extent of the injury. These symptoms include:

  • Difficulty moving the affected body part
  • Muscle spasms
  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Weakness

How are strains treated?

Many people can find relief from the symptoms of a strain by using conservative techniques like compression, elevation, icing, pain medication, and rest. In more severe cases, however, it may be necessary to see a doctor for further treatment. Depending on the injury, a doctor might recommend bracing, physical therapy, or even surgery.

I truly wish I could give them more than just 5 stars!

"I couldn’t have asked for better care for my son than from the staff at Tahoe Fracture and Orthopedic. From the receptionist all the way up to the surgeon, we were treated with the utmost respect, kindness, patience, and care. They were not only quick to get him in for an examination, but were amazingly quick to fit him into the schedule to have his injury treated asap!! Thanks to them, my son is now on the road to recovery. I truly wish I could give them more than just five stars!"

Thanks Doc!

"Dr. Mike Fry is a wonderful doctor and caring person. When I saw him for the first time, he held my hand and said, “I’m going to make you well”, and he did! I had back surgery 2.5 years ago and still doing great. Thanks Doc!"

We were deeply impressed with the entire experience.

"We were deeply impressed with the entire experience. Candace should be commended for her work ethic. Also my experience with the x-ray tech was outstanding. I would not change anything."

Dr. Fry and the entire staff were excellent.
