What is a sprain?

A “sprain” is another way to refer to a stretched or torn ligament (sprains are different than strains, which affect the muscles and tendons). Our ligaments are responsible for connecting our bones, providing stability to our joints, and limiting how far our bones can move. A sprain occurs when a ligament is forced to move too far out of place, often when the joint suddenly bends or twists. The ankle and wrist are two of the most commonly sprained joints in the body — ankle sprains frequently occur when someone is walking on an uneven surface, while wrist sprains often occur when someone falls onto an outstretched hand.

What are the symptoms of a sprain?

In some cases, you may be able to feel or even hear a “pop” when a sprain occurs. Sprains can also cause the following symptoms, which may vary depending on the severity of the injury:

  • Bruising
  • Difficulty moving the affected joint
  • Pain
  • Swelling

How are sprains treated?

Patients are often able to relieve their symptoms by taking pain medication or anti-inflammatory medication, applying ice packs, and resting the joint. Other commonly used conservative remedies for sprains include:

  • Bracing
  • Compression
  • Elevation
  • Physical therapy

In some cases, such as when a ligament is completely torn, surgery may be necessary. Our experts will let you know which course of treatment is best suited to your specific needs.

I truly wish I could give them more than just 5 stars!

"I couldn’t have asked for better care for my son than from the staff at Tahoe Fracture and Orthopedic. From the receptionist all the way up to the surgeon, we were treated with the utmost respect, kindness, patience, and care. They were not only quick to get him in for an examination, but were amazingly quick to fit him into the schedule to have his injury treated asap!! Thanks to them, my son is now on the road to recovery. I truly wish I could give them more than just five stars!"

Thanks Doc!

"Dr. Mike Fry is a wonderful doctor and caring person. When I saw him for the first time, he held my hand and said, “I’m going to make you well”, and he did! I had back surgery 2.5 years ago and still doing great. Thanks Doc!"

We were deeply impressed with the entire experience.

"We were deeply impressed with the entire experience. Candace should be commended for her work ethic. Also my experience with the x-ray tech was outstanding. I would not change anything."

Dr. Fry and the entire staff were excellent.

"My entire experience was just as good as I had planned…a great day! Dr. Fry and the entire staff were excellent. Thanks a lot!"
