Joint and Ligament Sprains

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.
