What’s the Difference Between a Sprain and a Strain

Exercising regularly is vital for improved weight control and better management of PCOS symptoms. But exercise may occasionally lead to sprains or strains, so it’s best to know what to do if one or the other occurs.
Both involve the partial stretching or tearing of a soft tissue but the difference lies in where the injury is located.
A sprain refers to a stretched or torn ligament, while a strain applies to a muscle or tendon. Minimize the chances of one or the other occuring by never overdoing your exercise through being too ambitious. Stop right away if you feel any pain.
If  you experience a sprain or strain, rest the injury by not putting any weight on it for at least 24 hours, ice the area in intervals of 20 minutes and elevate an injured ankle, knee, elbow or wrist above the heart to drain fluid from the area. It’s best to check with your doctor, even if you consider the injury to be minor.
