  • A muscle sprain is a stretching or tearing of ligaments (tough bands of tissue that connect one bone to another in a joint) - think ankle sprain. (
  • A sprain is the overstretching or tearing of ligaments, which are the tissues that connect bones to each other and stabilize them. (
  • A tear is the ripping of tissue in ligaments, muscles or tendons. (
  • Ligaments are slightly elastic, but you can overstretch them through sudden or extreme movements, and you can even tear them. (
  • The severity will depend on the extent of injury to a single ligament (whether the tear is partial or complete) and the number of ligaments involved. (
  • A sprained wrist typically occurs after a fall on an outstretched hand stretches or tears the ligaments of the wrist. (
  • When an athlete falls on the hand, the muscles, tendons and ligaments in the wrist take to majority of the impact and can be stretched and torn. (
  • More severe wrist sprain injuries, including complete tears of the ligaments and fractures of the bone may need different treatment and rehab than a simple sprained wrist. (
  • A knee sprain occurs when the knee ligaments are twisted or turned beyond its normal range, causing the ligaments to tear. (
  • Ligaments may be damaged when they are stretched beyond their normal capacity and may even tear, partially or fully. (
  • A sprain is where one or more of your ligaments is stretched, twisted or torn. (
  • Traumatic injuries are also a possibility, from sprained ankles to torn ligaments and even concussions. (
  • Most people with mild sprains and strains can treat these injuries at home by following "RICE" therapy (see below). (
  • Some injuries, like Achilles tendon tears, may cause only mild pain at first, but are actually more severe. (
  • FRIDAY, March 24, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- Sprains , strains and tears are different types of injuries, and it's important to know how they differ, a sports massage therapist says. (

  • Duke Sports Injury and Orthopaedic Urgent Care at Heritage is dedicated to providing fast treatment for sprains, strains, fractures and other orthopedic injuries. (
  • Injuries like sprains, strains, broken bones, ligament and cartilage tears require fast medical attention. (
  • However, for some severe tears, such as those of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the knee, surgery may be needed. (
  • The most common type of sprain or tear of the knee is in the anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL. (
  • Depending on how bad the sprain or strain is, the pain may be mild, moderate, or severe. (
  • The worse the sprain or strain, the harder it is to use the affected area. (
  • Although the degree of pain and swelling are usually the best indicators of how severe a sprain or strain is, this is not always the case. (
  • Immediate treatment for an injury, such as a sprain or strain of the hand or wrist, includes the RICE formula - rest, ice, compression, and elevation. (
  • It can be difficult to distinguish between a sprain or strain and a fracture, and a specialist's evaluation will be important to determine the appropriate treatment. (
  • Is tearing of ligament fibers called a sprain or strain? (
  • A calf strain, commonly called a 'pulled' muscle, is caused by overstretching or tearing of either of the 2 calf muscles - the soleus and the gastrocnemius. (

  • Calf strain or tear is caused by overstretching or tearing of either of the 2 calf muscles. (
  • A calf muscle strain is a partial or complete tear of the small fibers of the muscles. (
  • A strain is similar to a sprain, but rather than ligamentous injury, there is damage seen in the muscle or tendon (connects muscles to bone). (
  • Medical providers refer to torn muscles as muscle strains. (
  • According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, those who warm up with light stretching and walking or jogging before exerting themselves are less likely to tear their muscles. (
  • All the muscles of the rotator cuff, including the subscapularis, can tear from overuse, trauma, or age-related conditions. (
  • This happens when impingement of other rotator cuff muscles puts pressure on the subscapularis and causes them to tear. (
  • But at other times, such as when warming muscles up before exercise or to soothe repetitive tendon strain, heat is the way to go. (
  • Recovery for torn muscles also varies depending on which muscle is damaged, and the care the tear receives following the injury. (
  • For more serious third-degree tears of muscles like biceps and hamstrings, complete recovery can take up to 6 months after surgery. (
  • Factors that can increase your likelihood of a strain or severe tear include tightness in any of your muscles, imbalance of the muscle, poor muscular conditioning and overall weakness, lack of proper warm-up, and muscle fatigue caused by exercise or poor conditioning. (
  • When this happens, you've probably strained the calf muscles -- overstretched a cold or stiff muscle, resulting in a partial or complete tear between the muscle and the Achilles tendon. (
  • Chronic strains typically result from repetitive movement of the muscles and tendons over a long period of time. (
  • Torn muscles are also known as muscle strains. (
  • Torn muscles are commonly referred to as "pulled muscles. (
  • Thankfully, most people fully recover from torn muscles. (
  • Acetaminophen or ibuprofen work well for torn muscles. (
  • Causes of calf pain can include muscle cramp, delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) and referred pain from the lumbar spine, however, by far the most common cause of pain in the lower leg is a strain to the musculo-tendinous complex of the Gastrocneimus and/or Soleus (the two main calf muscles). (
  • Scientists can now look all the way down to the atoms our tendons are made up of and discover the reason for these strains, sprains, and tears. (
  • WebMD describes the symptoms of a muscle strain like this: swelling, bruising or redness, pain in the affected area at rest, pain in the affected muscle when it is used, weakness of the muscle or tendons, and possible inability to use the muscle at all. (

  • November 2017 - When people refer to torn cartilage in the knee, they're often talking about a tear in the meniscus, the wedge of cartilage cushioning the space between the thighbone and shinbone. (
  • Additionally, the fact that each knee joint contains two menisci only increases the odds that one will be torn or otherwise injured, Dr. Plancher notes. (
  • Athlete or not, your meniscus can be torn during activities that rotate or place pressure on the knee joint, Dr. Plancher says. (
  • But even performing a seemingly benign activity, such as twisting the knee while rising from a chair, can cause a meniscal tear in someone predisposed to the problem. (
  • People who have torn their meniscus often report a "popping" sound in the knee joint when the tear occurred. (
  • Other common symptoms of a meniscal tear include pain, stiffness or swelling in the knee that gradually worsens over days. (

  • A strain is an injury to a muscle involving tearing of muscle fibers. (
  • A strained rotator cuff tendon is a common and painful injury . (
  • A strained tendon can also result from an old injury that has not healed properly. (
  • It is very important to heal a strained tendon properly to decrease the chance of further injury or chronic problems from developing. (
  • Re-injury of a strained tendon occurs more easily than the initial injury and there is usually more inflammation around a re-injured tendon than there was during the first injury. (
  • A 'Grade III' tear causes a very sharp pain within the rotator cuff at the time of the injury. (
  • Not all meniscal tears can be avoided, but athletes in particular can use several strategies to lower their odds of this potentially devastating injury, Dr. Plancher says. (
  • It can be a result of a herniated disk due to trauma or a wear-and-tear injury. (
  • An MCL injury can result in a minor stretch (sprain) or a partial or complete tear of the ligament. (
  • Other symptoms of a subscapularis tear are unique to this injury. (
  • In young people, an injury is the most common cause of a subscapularis tear. (
  • If the tear goes through the full thickness of the muscle, you have significant disability from the injury, or the tear doesn't get better after three to six months of conservative treatment, your doctor will probably recommend surgery. (
  • Muscle strains range in severity from a mild tear to a more severe injury requiring surgery. (
  • The recovery time for muscle tears varies based on the injury. (

  • A repetitive strain injury ( RSI ) is an injury to part of the musculoskeletal or nervous system which is caused by repetitive use, vibrations, compression or long periods in a fixed position. (
  • Repetitive strain injury (RSI) and associative trauma orders are umbrella terms used to refer to several discrete conditions that can be associated with repetitive tasks, forceful exertions, vibrations, mechanical compression, sustained or awkward positions, or repetitive eccentric contractions . (
  • The meniscus can tear as a result of injury or secondary degenerative changes that occur over time. (
  • Some meniscal tears occur with acute injury and some as degenerative changes (over time). (
  • While you should ice the area in the first 24 hours following the injury, you can begin using heat to treat your torn muscle after that time period. (
  • This "cramping" sensation is often due to recurrent minor calf tears which can be linked back to old scar tissue from a previous (and more severe) calf tear - this scar tissue is common in patients that did not undergo adequate rehabilitation following their initial calf injury. (

  • That's why a meniscal tear can not only knock you off the field, but cause pain and difficulty in daily living. (
  • Treatment for a rotator cuff tear consists of reducing the initial pain and inflammation, allowing the tissues to heel followed by a full rehabilitation program consisting of mobility, stretching, strengthening and functional shoulder exercises. (
  • The pain when you try to move your body part where the muscle is torn. (
  • The most common symptom of a subscapularis tear is shoulder pain, especially in the front of the shoulder. (
  • If pain is localized at the bottom of your calf, work the soleus -- your lower calf muscle -- once you've recovered from a strain. (
  • Typical signs and symptoms of a strain include pain, functional loss of the involved structure, muscle weakness, contusion, and localized inflammation. (
  • Many meniscus tears may be minimal in terms of pain, and so a quadriceps and hamstring strengthening program which avoids impact may be beneficial. (
  • However, if the tear is associated with significant pain, swelling or instability, arthroscopic meniscectomy should be considered, especially in the absence of arthritic change. (
  • There are a significant number of people who do not have the sharp, stabbing pain associated with the typical calf strain - but report more of an intermittent cramping sensation during exercise. (
  • Once the calf strain is diagnosed and other problems excluded, initial management will aim to reduce pain and swelling. (
  • Soleus strains although less common (due to the fact that the muscle only crosses one joint i.e. the ankle) are also sometimes seen in clinical practise. (

  • Shoulder impingement can also cause a subscapularis tear. (
  • If you can't hold your palm on your shoulder or have a lot of trouble holding it on, you might have a tear in your upper subscapularis. (
  • Most surgery for a subscapularis tear is done arthroscopically, which means your doctor inserts a camera into your shoulder through a small slit and uses the camera to guide the surgery. (
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation - although most hamstring tears will heal on their own, they need special exercises and therapy to return to full function. (
  • How long does it take a torn muscle to heal? (
  • Available over-the-counter, anti-inflammatory medication will prevent swelling, helping your torn muscle to heal more quickly. (
