Short Description of Sprains
Sprains are basically the stretching or tearing of ligaments. The ligaments are essentially tough bands of fibrous tissue that connect two bones together in the joints. The most common area in the body where people get sprains is the ankle. Mild sprains may be treated at home but more severe ones could require surgery in order to repair the damaged ligaments.
Symptoms of Sprains
The signs and symptoms are dependent on the severity of the sprain and may include:
- Limited motion on the affected part
- Hearing or feeling a “pop” in the area where the injury occurred
Sprains result from an overstretched, torn or twisted ligament. Ligaments are tough bands of fibrous tissue that serve to connect bones to other bones or cartilage. These ligaments are usually located in and around the joints. The most common areas where an injury of this type can occur include the wrists, knees, thumbs and the ankles. The most common area injured is the ankle. The main difference between a sprain and strains is that the latter refers to an overstretched, torn, or twisted muscle or tendon. Tendons are essentially tough cords of fibrous tissue that serve to connect the muscle and the bones. The most common areas of the body where strains happen include the back, feet, knees and the legs.
Sprains normally occur around a joint therefore the severity of symptoms is dependent on how much tissue fibers are damaged like the ankle. The symptoms of sprains include: pain, bruising, swelling, limited motion around the affected joint, inability to put weight on the joint or use it as usual and a popping sensation at the moment of injury. For strains, the injury may occur suddenly but it could also develop over time. Symptoms include: swelling, pain and tenderness over the area, muscle spasm or cramping, weakness and limited movement.
Etiology of Sprains
Both sprains and strains happen when the body is subjected to significant physical stress. When faced under these situations, the muscles and joints are forced to do movements for which they are not designed for or prepared to do resulting to the sprain. This may happen from a single stressful incident, contact sports or it may happen because of frequency of repetitions of a particular activity. Normally, the mechanism behind calls for placing the muscle tendon unit or the ligament under severe stretching, resulting to muscle damage as well as injury to the tendon and the ligament fibers.
Diagnosis of Sprains
The doctor will perform a routine history and physical examination and will look for signs of swelling and points of tenderness on the affected area. The intensity and location of the pain will help the doctor determine the severity and nature of the condition. An x-ray examination may be requested by the examining doctor in order to rule out a fracture or other bone issues. In severe cases, a MRI exam may be performed to help ascertain the extent of the problem.
Ankle Sprains – The ankle sprain is by far the most common joint injury. The usual mechanism for the insult is quick rolling or twisting of the ankle and turning it inward also called inversion so much so that the sole of the foot begins to point upward or in the supination position. The result is a severe stretching and damage to the ligaments located on the outside or lateral area of the ankle that serves to keep the joint in a stable position. While most ankle sprains tend to be mild in nature, some ankle injuries may be quite extreme and require surgical repair and physical rehabilitation.
Knee Sprains – This type of injury is usually sports-related and usually makes a lot headlines for its penchant of ending professional sports athletes playing careers. You can find 4 ligaments in the knee that serve to act as a hinge joint, flexing (bending) or extending (straightening). The medial and lateral collateral ligaments and the anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments ensure that the knee is always kept in proper alignment. The ligaments are supported by the hamstring and the quadriceps muscles. When an athlete suffers a tear in the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the knee, it is described as a grade 3 injury of the cruciate ligament.
Neck Sprains – the non-medical term is called whiplash and is a common injury in car accidents. Whiplash refers to the head and neck movement when abruptly flexed forward and backward as the car quickly stops to a halt. While the rest of the body is held in its place with a seat belt or air bag the head creates a bobble head motion and keeps moving. This results to severe stress to the muscles and ligaments that hold the neck bones in their proper position and the stresses put on these structures can result to severe pain and damage. The ligaments that support and stabilize the bones are also damaged or torn causing symptoms of pain and even swelling. At times, it may cause the neck to become unstable putting the spinal cord at risk for damage.
Wrist Sprain—Also one of the most common injuries as we use our hands to perform most of our daily tasks. Usually, the wrist sustains injuries because of a fall however, repetitive tasks and a single abrupt and aggressive movement can also cause damage and pain. There are some sports that are more prone to getting wrist injuries due to the amount of stress placed on the wrists. These sports include: baseball, football, tennis and bowling. The injuries may also occur from falling on an outstretched hand as in skateboarding, snowboarding and skiing.
Thumb and Finger Sprains – These are known as Skier’s or gamekeeper’s thumb and is a type of sprain at the base of the thumb where the ulnar collateral ligament span the metacarpophalageal joint., the area where the thumb connects to the hand. The ligament keeps the thumb stable when performing pinching and grasping movements. It is commonly injured in a fall wherein the thumb is forced away from the palm of the hand like when a skier falls and the ski pole pushes the thumb in an unnatural direction.
Recovery Period for Sprains
The objective of treatment after a sprain is to put the patient back to the previous level of health and functioning before the injuries occurred. The duration for recovery will depend on the extent and what part of the body was injured. The most important therapy for any kind of sprain is allowing time for healing. A sprained ankle may require at least two to four weeks to go back to its previous health while a torn ACL or a grade 3 sprains might require some surgery and months of physical rehabilitation.
In order to ensure the health of your ligaments and tendons avoid doing abrupt movements and motions that may cause damage to the area. Avoid uneven areas in walking paths where you could twist an ankle. Use ergonomic devices to secure your wrist and prevent injury. Use protective sports equipment to safeguard the knees and ensure you do proper stretching before exercising to ensure your muscles and joints are not damaged. Maintain an adequate weight to stay in perfect health and shape so as to lessen too much stress on the joints.
