A sprain is a stretch or tear to a ligament.
A strain is a stretch or tear to a muscle or tendon.
They can be the result of a trauma such as a fall, or when the joint or muscle is taken beyond its functional range of motion and limitation.
A sprain or strain could be a message about:
Being taken beyond a comfortable level of performance
Being pushed by another to succeed or achieve
Pushing yourself to succeed or achieve
Fatigue or exhaustion
Needing a rest
Jumping into something without adequate preparation
Sprains are most common in the ankle or wrist. Ankles could be related to power games, relationships, money and material security. Wrists could be connected to giving too much, continually putting your hand up for something, or wanting to receive more. Joints are also related to flexibility.
Fatigued muscles can be a forerunner to strains if the muscle group is overworked. Fatigued muscles need to be rested.
Are you pushing yourself to the extremes?
Muscle groups can also become damaged if not warmed up sufficiently before exerting them.
Do you understand due diligence?
Do you gather the facts and prepare before you begin?
Ligaments and tendons are part of the skeletal system. Ligaments connect bone with bone, and tendons connect muscle with bone. Any condition or problem connected with ligaments and tendons must consider how the person concerned is connecting with others, and what in their life needs to be restructured, connected with or disconnected from.
Bone to bone is similar to two solid forces meeting head on.
No one is going to give an inch.
Bone to muscle is a connection of an immoveable force with something that is flexible and more giving.
Who gives in first?
