Sprain and Strain Injury

Sprains and strains are common injuries that share many characteristics. A sprain is a stretching or tearing of a muscle or tendon. Strains often occur in the lower back or in the hamstring area of the leg. Strain symptoms include pain, swelling, muscle spasms and a limited ability to move the affected muscle or tendon.

Sprains are often found in the ankle and also include symptoms like pain, swelling and the inability to move the affected joint. An ankle sprain could be caused by something as simple as walking or exercising on an uneven surface.

Knee sprains are the result of an awkward pivot, such as attempting to regain balance after someone bumps into you. The twisting of the tendons and muscles around your knee can lead to temporary or chronic pain in the joint.

A wrist sprain often happens when bracing for a fall with your hands outstretched. Many people suffer these if they’ve slipped on wet tile and attempt to ease their fall by landing with their hands.

A sprain or strain injury can be extremely painful and debilitating.

Sprains and strains often happen on the job. In many cases, these are the result of tired workers being asked to do too much. Workers in Las Vegas, especially those working outside, may become fatigued because of the high desert temperatures they’re exposed to each day.

Slips and falls are another factor causing strains or sprains for people in Las Vegas. These can happen in hotels, casinos, restaurants and other events locations that have neglected to ensure there is no standing water or slippery surface in public areas.
