Wellness Tip
Exercise injuries
A strain involves a tear or rupture in the muscle fibers. A sprain involves the stretching or tearing of connective tissue, such as the ligaments surrounding a joint. If you injure yourself while exercising, stop and seek treatment. Far too often people ignore initial pain, swelling, or discoloration. This can lead to worse problems and longer recovery times. To reduce exercise related injuries, warm up and cool down properly, and above all, listen to your body!
