SPRAIN - DESCRIPTION


A sprain is an injury to the ligaments that connect and hold together the ends of the bones in the joints. Sprains are most often caused by a sudden action of force on the wrist, due to stumbling and twisting of the ankle or wrist, whereby the full weight of the body rests on the wrist. In the elderly, instability or weakening of the ligaments can lead to this type of injury. In milder cases, the ligaments are stretched, and in severe cases, the ligaments rupture. Sprains cause painful swelling around the joint that cannot be moved without feeling pain.
