Sprains and Strains

How does a sprain affect the body?

A Answers (1)

  • A sprain can have various effects on the body depending on the severity and location of the sprained joint. A sprain happens when a ligament is stretched too far or torn. Usually, this is caused when a joint is stressed and forced into an unnatural, painful position. The sprain may cause the joint to become painful, swollen, and bruised.
