Sprains & Strains

Sprains or soft tissue injuries occur when stretching or tearing a ligament. Ligaments are bands of tissues that connect bones together. Common joints to suffer sprains are ankles and knees.  A strain is an injury to a muscle or band of tissue that connects the muscle to bone.  A common site for strains is the hamstring or calf muscle. 
Simple first aid can be initiated at home including rest, elevation, and compression.  If your symptoms aren’t improving with first aid visit us at HEAL Urgent Care or call –  so we can help you.
