Sprains and strains

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

Dr. William Ferrar is helping his patients through some sprains and strains.

The soft tissue injuries of the joints versus the hard tissue injuries of the bone and cartilage are occurring more frequently.

You can prevent the problem by "starting low and going slow." It is a great warm up technique as are more formal warm up techniques.

When the injury occurs, the basic rule of resting the injured joint is the most helpful.
