Ligamentous sprain



Bones are linked by ligaments. Ligaments allow movement of, and support to, joints, but are also capable of restricting movement in order to protect the body. Ligaments are tough. They are made of collagen and this is what gives them strength. The collagen fibres are longitudinal and allow great forces to be applied against them. In collision sports, however, exceptional forces can damage joints when the ligament is stretched beyond its capacity.

In addition, everyday actions can cause damage if care is not taken. Falling or twisting incorrectly can sometimes lead to a misplaced joint. The damage can be mild to severe. Common joints affected are the ankles, wrists and knees, but other joints can be affected. Symptoms of a ligamentous sprain include swelling, bruising and pain. The area can be hard to move too.
