What is a "sprain"?

A sprain is an injury to a ligament, which is the tissue that connects bones to each other in joints. It typically happens when a joint is forced beyond its normal range of motion, causing the ligament to stretch or tear. Sprains commonly occur in the ankles, wrists, or knees and can result in pain, swelling, and difficulty moving the injured joint. Depending on the seriousness, sprains may require rest, ice, compression, and elevation or medical attention such as physical therapy to fully recover.
