A strain is an injury to a muscle or tendon. Muscles are made to stretch, but if stretched too far, or if stretched while contracting, an injury called a strain my result. A strain can either be a stretching or tear of the muscle or tendon. Ligament sprains/strains from sports injuries or accidents usually have a well defined healing time usually 6 to 8 weeks.
