What’s a Sprain?
A sprain occurs when a ligament (which connects the bones together) stretches or completely tears. When someone suddenly bends or twists one of their joints, it can result in a sprain. People commonly sprain their wrists when they fall down onto an outstretched hand, and ankle sprains often occur when someone slips or trips while walking on an uneven surface.
