Sprains, along with strains, are among the most common sports injuries. It is important to have a sprain properly treated to prevent it from becoming a chronic issue.
Sprains and Strains
A sprain is an injury resulting from a stretch or tear in a ligament or muscle fibre. Ligaments are bands of fibrous tissues that connect the bones and bind the joints together. Sprains typically occur in the lower limbs, particularly the ankles. A strain is a mild sprain where there is no tear or rupture involved.
