A strain is normally a stretching or tearing of a muscle or tendon. A tendon is a fibrous cord of tissue that connects muscles to bones. The most common location for a sprain is in your ankle.
The recovery time from a muscle or tendon strain can be shortened significantly by taking the right course of action. An effective approach that our providers find most beneficial for a sprain or strain is utilizing massage therapy to assist with stimulating tissue hydration and mobility combined with instrument soft tissue mobilization (also known as Graston technique) to decrease imflammation to improve phasia and muscle ability in the injured and other associated area.
