I get strained, break and come apart (12)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

disintegrate

'come apart' is the definition.

'i get strained break' is the wordplay.
'break' is an anagram indicator.
'i'+'get'+'strained'='igetstrained'
'igetstrained' is an anagram of 'DISINTEGRATE'.

'and' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for disintegrate that I've seen before include "Fall apart - it isn't agreed (anag)" , "collapse" , "Crumble" , "Lose all cohesion" , "Go to pieces" .)
