Physicians define a sprain as a stretching or tearing of the ligaments: bands of thick, fibrous tissue that connect the bones together through the joints. Ankles tend to have the highest risk of suffering a sprain.

the initial treatment for a sprain should include the RICE strategy:

  • Rest
  • Ice
  • Compression
  • Elevation

Mild sprains will usually heal at home on their own when following this method, though severe sprains will sometimes require surgery in order to repair torn ligaments.

The main difference between sprains and strains: A sprain injures the tissue that connects the bones together, while a strain injures a muscle or to the tissue that attaches muscle to bone.

Our mission is to help patients to return to work, improve their quality of life, reduce dependence on medication and healthcare providers, and avoid persistent injuries.
