The painful phenomenon of sprains takes place when the fibers that connect bones together are torn or stretched. You are most likely to sprain your ankles, knees, wrists, or neck from an injury. Playing sports and running or even walking on an uneven surface can result in slips and falls and consequently, sprains or strains.
During a sprain, the ligaments are stretched to their limits and pulled while the joint moves in a considerably unnatural way causing immense pain.
If your pain is significantly high or you fear serious damage, we, at Medvisit, can help you by diagnosing and treating the issue through a telemedicine call or in-person house visit. All you have to do is to book an appointment with Medvisit, and we will make sure to take care of you from first-degree to third-degree sprains at the hands of experienced doctors.
