About Sprain

Back to the top

A sprain is an injury that occurs when a ligament - the bands of tissue that connect bones in a joint - is overstretched or torn. A sprain is different than a strain, which is damage to a muscle or the tissue that connects muscle to bone. Sprains commonly occur during physical activity, such as sports or intense exercise.

The areas most commonly affected by sprains are:

  • Ankles
  • Knees
  • Wrists
  • Thumbs

Sprains are caused by intense stress on a joint; for instance, landing awkwardly on your ankle after jumping, or overextending your wrist by putting weight on it as you fall. Many people experience a “pop” sound as a ligament tears.

The common symptoms of a sprain include:

  • Pain in the affected area
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Limited mobility

Sprains can vary in severity, depending on the cause of the injury. While many cases of mild sprains can be treated at home, severe sprains can leave you unable to walk or move the injured area of your body. In these instances, medical attention is recommended as soon as possible to begin treatment.

Talk to a doctor if you:

  • Are unable to move the injured joint
  • Are unable to put weight on the injured joint
  • Experience numbness in the affected area

Most sprains take several weeks to recover. During that time, you must avoid strenuous activity that puts any pressure on the affected joint. Untreated sprains can cause chronic pain or injuries such as fractures as a result of weakness and lack of mobility. Rest is the best treatment for a sports injury such as a sprain.
