Sprains, Strains, and Broken Bones

Sprains and Strains

  • sprain is the stretching or tearing of ligaments (the tissue that connects two bones together in your joints). Sprains commonly occur in the ankle, wrist, knee, and elbow.

  • strain is the stretching or tearing of muscles and tendons. You might strain your lower back, your calf or hamstring muscle.


While sprains and strains are usually self-treatable, it’s advisable to have a medical professional evaluate the injury.

Severe sprains and strains may require surgery, or indicate a broken bone. A Saddleback provider can rule out these more serious injuries and determine the best course of treatment. Our providers will check the affected area for swelling, bruising, and stiffness, and look to pinpoint areas of tenderness. The location and severity of your pain will help reveal the extent of the injury.

Most sprains and strains can be treated with the R.I.C.E. method (rest, ice, compression, and elevation) and over-the-counter pain relievers. More severe injuries may require a brace or splint, or even surgery.
