#Sprains and #strains according to @WebMD are used interchangeably to describe everything from a twisted ankle to a pulled hamstring, but they are two specific injuries.
A sprain is a stretch or tear in a ligament (the bands of fibrous tissue that connect our bones at the joints).
A strain is also a stretch or tear, this time affecting the muscle itself or a tendon (the tissue that connects the muscles to the bones).
