Muscle strain

A muscle strain is often confused with a sprain but it's actually quite simple. A strain occurs when a muscle is either overstretched or torn, normally as a result of vigorous exercise, whereas a sprain is a joint injury.

This page examines the causes, symptoms and triggers of muscle strains, and offers a wide range of home and herbal remedies. There is also a Q&A service where you can ask Sonia any questions you have about muscle strain.
