chiropractic for sprains

Roughly 25,000 people sprain their ankle daily, making it the most common form of sprain in the US.

An injury to the tendons around a joint is called a sprain. Tendons are strong, flexible fibers that hold bones together. When a tendon is strained beyond its capacity or it tears, the joint will become painful and start to swell. When a tendon is severely injured, the tendon or joint capsule can lose stability in a joint.

Sprains are categorized on a scale of I to III:

Grade I - stretching of the tendon or a small tear, with little or no instability at the joint.

Grade II- a more troublesome but still not complete tear.

Grade III- is a completely torn tendon that has been torn open.

Sprains commonly develop when a individual falls, turns, or is hit in a way that drives the tendon out of its range of motion.

Wrist and thumb sprains are also very common, especially when patients participate in sports like skiing, where it’s not unusual to fall and land on an outstretched palm.

People who work with heavy machinery or are required to lift heavy objects are more susceptible to sprains in the workplace. This can include anyone from construction workers and laborers, to warehouse workers, nurses, and physical therapists.

Signs and indications of Sprains?

The signs and indications of general sprains can be difficult to pinpoint because strains and sprains are very similar to each other. Signs and symptoms may include pain and inflammation, and sometimes bruising in the injured region. Pain can be mild, moderate, or severe subject to the harshness of the sprain or strain, the.

When the strain or sprain gets worse, it makes it harder to use that area. Someone with a mild ankle sprain might just transfer his or her weight to the other ankle, while a more severe ankle sprain can develop severe pain and make it virtually impossible to walk.
