What Are Sprains?

Sprains are one of the most frequently suffered injuries in the U.S., and roughly 25,000 people sprain their ankle every day, nationwide. These common injuries occur when the ligaments are overextended or torn. Ligaments are elastic, fibrous tissues that connect two bones together at your joints, and they can only extend so far before they are injured. Sprains can be mild to severe, depending on the damage the ligament(s) sustains. The most common cause of sprains is landing awkwardly from a jump, pivoting too quickly, and/or landing on an outstretched wrist.

Another similar injury is a strain. The two differ in that sprains injure the ligament, while strains involve an injury to the muscle or tendons.

You may have a sprain if you are experiencing these symptoms:

  • Pain
  • Bruising
  • Swelling at the affected joint
  • Instability of the joint
  • Hearing and/or feeling a popping sound at the time of injury

How Can Chiropractic Help with My Sprain?

After you have experienced a sprain, it’s important to practice “RICE” – rest, ice, compression, and elevation of the injured area. Milder sprains may be treatable at home without medical intervention. Sprains can also be treated with chiropractic care, as chiropractic adjustments retrain the joints to move the way they were designed to. The focus of our chiropractic practice is to treat disorders of the joints, muscles, and ligaments. We can help if you have suffered a sprain by gently manipulating the joint to help relieve pain and to ensure the injury heals properly so you can go back to your active lifestyle as soon as possible. We also utilize safe and effective laser therapy to speed up the healing of a sprain, and shockwave therapy to blast out any calcification of injured ligaments, which allows them to heal naturally.
