Sprains & Strains

Common problems

Sprains occur when one or more of your ligaments have been stretched, twisted or torn, usually as a result of excessive force being applied to the joint. Symptoms include

  • Pain around the effected joint
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Tenderness

A strain occurs when muscle fibres stretch or tear. This usually occurs when a muscle has been stretched beyond its limits or it has been forced to contract too quickly. Symptoms include:

  • Pain in the effected muscles
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Muscle spasm
  • Loss of some or all of the function of the effected muscle

Osteopathic treatment will speed the recovery of sprains and strains and promote healing and well being.
