A strain is an injury of a muscle and/or tendon. Tendons are fibrous cords of tissue that attach muscles to bone. The injury occurs when muscle fibers tear as a result of being overstretched. A strain is often referred to as pulled muscle. Chronic strains are the result of overuse (prolonged, repetitive movement) of muscles and tendons. Inadequate rest breaks during intensive training precipitates a strain. Acute strains are caused by a direct blow to the body, overstretching, or excessive muscle contraction.
A sprain is an injury of a ligament which is often caused by trauma, more specifically when the joint has been taken beyond its functional range of motion. The severity of the injury can range from a minor injury that resolves in a few days to a major rupture of one or more ligaments requiring surgery and a period of immobilisation.
Common symptoms include pain, decreased range of motion (stiffness), swelling and/or bruising, or weakness. Because muscle and ligamentous tissue is affected with these injuries, strengthening is essential to have a complete recovery, return to sport/activity and to prevent possible recurrence of pain or injury.

My experience with Dr. Vigil's Advanced Physiotherapy was good. I had severe back pain since last 8 months. Due to my busy schedule I am not able to go any treatments.
Before come to Dr. Vigil's Advanced Physiotherapy clinic I have tried two physiotherapy in Andheri near to my office. Unfortunately both failed.
But here at Dr. Vigil's place the process treatment is different. Dr. Vigil is having advanced shockwave machine which do faster healing process.
After week physiotherapy my backpain almost gone. Now as directed I am going gym and with his guidance I have recover from my prolonged back pain.
My personal advice to everyone who has back pain and looking for solution than Dr. Vigil is doctor you looking for complete treatment.
Thank you Dr. Vigil and its team to helping me from bad back pain.

When considered effectiveness of this doctor's treatment I can say it's really good. But on the other hand the cost of treatment is really high. 700₹ per session and I was recommended 21 sessions for my backpain.
