A sprain is a stretch or tear of a tissue called ligaments. Ligaments are strong fibrous tissues that connect 2 bones together in joints. Sprains can happen at any ligament in the body, resulting in pain. Symptoms of sprains can present as: swelling, sharp/stabbing feeling, dull/aching feeling, limited motion, and tightness. Treatment options for sprains include: chiropractic manipulative therapy, myofascial therapies, decompression therapy, and other additional services.

A strain is an injury to a muscle or tendon. A tendon is a fibrous tissue that attaches a muscle to a bone, assisting in movement. Severity of muscle strains can range from a minor over stretch, known as a pulled muscle, to tearing of a muscle/tendon. Symptoms of a muscle strain can range from sharp, dull, achy, or throbbing pain, to limited motion, swelling, tenderness, spasm, and weakness. Treatment options for muscle strains include: chiropractic manipulative therapy, myofascial therapies, decompression therapy, and other additional services.
