How to prevent sprains:

The first step to prevent sprains is to prevent them in the first place.

The best advice for injury prevention is:

  1. Warm the ankle.
  2. Do not allow them to chill for too long.
  3. If you have sprained ankles, try wearing a compression stocking to keep your ankles warm.
  4. Do not use any ice in the injury area. If you have to take an ice, be sure it will not be applied over a swelling.
  5. Do not bend over. In order to prevent sprains from occurring, have a good posture and a good walk-like, balanced rhythm for every step you make. Always stretch before getting out of bed and before eating.
  6. Do not do any of the following to prevent injury: – Walk barefoot 2-3 times a day. – Avoid lifting and carrying heavy things. – Do not smoke. – Do not use ice.
  7. Avoid standing on things that can be twisted, twisted, bent or stretched.

What causes sprain?

Most common injury caused by sprains is not the actual injury, but the reaction to the injury.

Lumbar sprain

Lumbar sprain occurs when the lateral ligaments are weak, they become inflamed or damaged. When this happens, they cannot be stretched enough to protect the spine and the ligaments are forced to weaken and relax causing the sprain to happen.

Some factors may cause a lumbar sprain:

A tight hamstrings muscle (or weak quads) that pull the spine forward.

Over-using an upper leg, over time causing strain on the low back.

An improper technique in knee bending.

Poor sleep or medication use.

A muscle weakness in a limb that weakens the other limb.

Ankle sprain

Ankle sprain occurs when the anterior and posterior ligaments of the ankle are injured and over stretch, causing the ankle to rotate.

Some factors may cause an ankle sprain:

A poor technique in ankle bending.

Poor sleep, medications or medications that over-exert a muscle causing poor muscle control of movement.

Poor posture and walk-like rhythms for every step you make.

Poor muscle balance.

Achilles sprain

Ankle sprain occurs when the medial and lateral (outside) tibiae ligaments are injured or become injured. These ligaments allow the tendon to move outward from the foot in support of the sole.

Some factors may cause Achilles sprain:

An old injury or weak foot.

Poor technique in ankle bending.

Poor sleep, medications, or medications that over-exert a muscle causing poor muscle control of movement.

Poor balance or lack of muscle control in one of the ankle’s major joints.

Lateral ankle sprain

Lateral ankle sprain occurs when the medial and lateral (outside) ligaments of the ankle are injured or become injured. This is common to athletes and many people. This happens when a person is working on a gymnastic exercise and slips on the gymnastic shoes or an uneven surface.

Some factors may cause an ankle sprain:

Poor technique in ankle bending.

Poor sleep, medications or medications that over-exert a muscle causing poor muscle control of movement.

Poor balance or lack of muscle control in one of the ankle’s major joints.

Anterior tibial plateau sprain

An anterior tibial plateau sprain occurs when the anterior lateral tibial ligament is damaged. The anterior tibial plateau is a small tibial plateau that runs along the top of the tibia. The injured ligament has become inflamed and damaged over time. This injury is common to some children in sports and can lead to long-term pain, stiffness and instability in the joint.

Some factors may cause a tibial plateau sprain:

An old injury or weak foot.

Poor technique in ankle bending.

Poor sleep, medications, or medications that over-exert a muscle causing poor muscle control of movement.

Poor balance or lack of muscle control in one of the ankle’s major joints.

Lateral lateral ligament sprain

Lateral ligament sprain occurs when the lateral ligaments of the ankle are injured or become injured. This is a common injury to football players and other athletes who use their ankles.

For a sprained ankle Do the following

  1. A warm bath.
  2. Ice pack, warm water
  3. Wipe the outside of the foot
  4. Apply ice pack
  5. Cover up with a towel
  6. Go to bed
  7. A warm bath is highly recommended.
  8. As with a sprained ankle, if in doubt take an injection at home in a medical clinic and avoid long hours of work.
  9. Ditch the socks and boots in a well-ventilated room in the house.
  10. Avoid sitting on the couch for long periods. Do not get up until your ankle has completely healed.
  11. If the ankle is swollen, a compression wrap may be helpful. Compress it to be very hot, like 400F (204C).
  12. Keep the swelling in check through the use of a heat pad.
  13. Follow the instructions on the label.
  14. Call your doctor if symptoms worsen. Avoid sports during treatment and avoid strenuous activities for a while afterwards. Do not get up too early and do not sleep in the same room as the doctor. Do not leave the bed early when the swelling is large.
  15. Wear a comfortable pair of socks and boots for a long period of time after the treatment.
  16. Avoid physical activity and strenuous exertion for a few days and see your doctor. Do not get too many treatments within a short period of time. Do not get up for more than two weeks.
  17. Call the doctor if symptoms return for more than six weeks.
  18. Keep to the prescribed amount of vitamin E for a long period of time.
