Numerous injuries fall into the categories of sprains, strains and fractures. Sprains happen when excessive force is applied to a joint and damage results to the ligaments that hold the bones together. Common areas of the body to sustain sprains are wrists, ankles, knees and fingers.
Strains refer to the tearing or stretching of muscles or tendons. The tendons connect the muscles to the bones.
Fractures are cracks or breaks in bones. They occur when more pressure is applied to the bone than it can withstand. Commonly, fractures are the result of falls.
