So now we’ve looked at the difference between ‘ache’ and ‘pain’, what about ‘sore’ and ‘sprained’?
What’s the difference?
Sore = painful or uncomfortable, usually caused by an injury or infection, eg a sore finger
Sprained = painful, caused by turning or stretching a joint too much, eg a sprained ankle
All of the following parts of the body can be used with ‘sore’ but only 3 can be used with ‘sprained’. Do you know which 3?
throat wrist knee thumb toe ankle foot finger eye ear head
