What Are Joint and Ligament Sprains?
A joint or ligament sprain is a result of the ligament being overstretched or overused. The most common cause of an overstretched ligament is in a sprained ankle, where the ankle joint has been twisted further than its normal range of movement.
Common symptoms include:
- Pain on movement and weight bearing.
- Inflamed and bruised joints.
- Burning sensation.
- Reduced range of movement.
