What is a Ligament Sprain?

A ligament sprain refers to the tearing or stretching of a ligament. Ligaments are the fibrous bands of tissue that connect your bones. Ligament sprains range from mild to severe and are classified according to grades (grades I, II, III). Sprains mostly occur in the ankle, wrist, and knee, although they can occur in other parts of the body. A sprain mostly occurs when a person twists or falls or rolls their ankles when they are jumping or running.

The Symptoms of Ligament Sprains

The most common symptoms of a ligament sprain include:

  • Pain
  • Bruising
  • Instability
  • Immobility of the affected joint
  • Swelling

Chiropractic Treatment for Ligament Sprains

Chiropractic care is one of the most effective methods for treating ligament sprains. Chiropractors use methods like therapeutic ultrasound, interferential current, cold therapy, splints, tape, and chiropractic adjustments to treat the injured site. The recovery period depends on the severity of the sprain and the body’s response to the treatment. A person with a mild sprain will often recover faster than one with a severe sprain. Our chiropractors will talk to you about healing timelines according to your condition. However, if the ligaments are torn, you might need surgery to correct the problem.
