Sprains & Strains

Some of the common Injuries we treat at The Foot Clinic in Toronto are Sprains and Strains. Many of our Patients suffer these Injuries when working out.

Sprain – Stretching or Tearing of a Ligament

If your Injury involves the stretching or tearing of a Ligament, you have a Sprain. Your Ligaments are bands of Connective Tissue that join the ends of 2 Bones. They help to stabilize and support your Body’s Joints. The Ligaments in your Knee allow you to Walk and run. A Sprain can be caused by direct or indirect Trauma that knocks your Joint out of position or overstretches it. In severe cases, the supporting Ligaments will rupture. Sprains are often caused by falls where you land awkwardly or Running on uneven surfaces.

Symptoms include:

  • Pain
  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Inflammation
You might hear a pop or tear during the Injury. In severe cases, the Joint will not be functional.

Strain – Injury of a Muscle or Tendon

If you have a Strain, you may have Injured a Muscle or Tendon, the cord of Tissue that attaches your Muscles and Bones. These Injuries are typically the result of prolonged and repetitive movements. Our Toronto Chiropodists often stress the importance of taking breaks in your workout and resting your Muscles and Tendons at regular intervals.

Symptoms include:

  • Pain
  • Muscle Spasms
  • Weakness
  • Swelling
  • Inflammation
  • Cramping
Severe Strains can involve the rupturing of your Muscle or Tendon, resulting in a complete loss of function in the affected area. If you are Injured, The Foot Clinic can help with accurate Diagnosis and Customized Treatments for your unique situation.
