Superior Sprain Care
Put simply, a sprain is an injury to a ligament, and should not be confused with a strain, which is an injury to a muscle or tendon. Sprains can happen for any number of reasons, such as falling, twisting, and other actions that can force your joint out of place, causing the ligaments to stretch or tear.
So, what do you do if you sustain a sprain? Turn to our sprain care staff. We understand that together, the agonizing pain and swelling make doing seemingly simple tasks impossible. We will evaluate your injury, determine if you have in fact, sprained something, and prescribe a treatment to help you heal your ligaments. It is vital to visit your primary care doctor right away for sprain care, as broken bones or fractures are often mistaken for sprains.
Sprain care treatments can be as simple as resting the sprained area and applying ice to the injury. In some instances, we may prescribe a strong NSAID (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug) to reduce the swelling and pain.
