Strains and sprains in the back what’s
the difference? So, a strain think about it as this. Over stretching the muscle
and sometimes that can tear a sprain is when you’re tearing some of those
fibrous tissues of your ligaments, and so ligaments hold you know the bones in
between the vertebrae that’s what holds it together that fibrous tough tissue
that’s going down.>It’s what causes one of the other. First: What causes a sprain?
>Anything — Can cause or– Can cause either one overuse of it mostly the sprain is
something more of a trauma or an accident or you’re walking and then, you,
you know, you kind of sprain your ankle. Which is one of the most that gets hurt.
A strain is maybe overusing it you know, or you reach over to grab something and
you’re just over stretching the muscle of your lower back.>Healing. I gotta tell
you, I’ll be honest I’m one of those guys come on it’s a strain “walk it off” “it’s a
sprain everything’s fine” it’s not the smartest thing to do.>Well — probably not — I tell our patients you know try things at home first, you know. Definitely rest,
definitely not use it, you know as much. Resting, putting maybe some ice packs on, it taking some anti-inflammatories. Being off your feet you know getting the
weight off of it is what I definitely would recommend.
