Sprains & Strains

Sprains and strains refer to painful stretching or tearing of tissues between bones and muscles, but these injuries are typically not serious and can be treated with a little RICE (more on that in a minute) and lots of TLC. We are especially prone to sprains and strains in the winter time when involved in activities like skating, skiing or snowboarding for the first time in a long time and doing so without adequately warming up our muscles.

Check out this month’s Quick Reference Guide all about treating sprains and strains.
