About Sprains

SprainsThe term sprain is used to refer to an injury to a ligament - the tissue that connects bones together.

Sprains are most common in the wrist, ankle and knee, but sometimes take a while to appear.

They can be diagnosed by a pain in the affected part of the body, which sometimes leads to swelling or stiffness.

Most sprains will take a number of weeks to heal, although this depends on how severe the injury is.

In most cases it is possible to treat a sprain at home, but more serious cases need to be referred to a medical professional.

Terry White Chemists can offer painkillers such as paracetamol, strapping tapes, bandages and other advice on the treatment of sprains.
