Sprains: Sprains are injuries to joints, while strains are muscle injuries. Lack of conditioning and flexibility are more likely than any medical issue. Seeing a physical trainer could help with muscle building around joints, flexibility and promoting good balance. Proper stretching techniques will also be taught.
