An injury to a muscle or tendon is called a muscle strain. Muscle strains range from the minor kind caused by overstretching to partial or complete tears. Often called pulled muscles, these strains commonly affect the lower back or hamstrings. A strain is different from a sprain, which is an injury to the bands of tissue connecting two bones. Signs of muscle strain include pain and swelling.
