Repetitive stress sudden, irregular movement or load on the ligaments can result in tearing or a sprain of the ligaments. The subsequent injury, which affects athletes in a wide selection of sports, creates pain and varying levels of immobility.
Cause of injury
Lifting beyond capacity. Sudden torsion of the backbone, including a drop during other or skiing game. Unprepared movement.
Signs and symptoms
Pain and stiffness. Bending over when straightening the spine and pain. Tenderness and inflammation.
A sprain to the ligaments will force the athlete to break the injury and permit recovery time because of stiffness and pain precluding action. Should the activity be continued before recovery that is an adequate tearing of the lasting and ligaments ligament injury can result? A ligament sprain can become acutely painful and incapacitating if dismissed.
RICER regimen after injury. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
Rehabilitation and prevention
To the majority of activity, a few days rest should permit a return in the case of a sprain. This should be undertaken to prevent and to reestablish flexibility. Exercises for the trunk shouldn’t be undertaken until recovery. Stretching and warm-ups before sports, attention and superior posture to technique can help prevent this harm.
Less than 5 per cent of injuries require surgery, although 6-8 months of recovery are required more if the sprain is severe, and surgery is justified for a sprain. The possibility of re-injury wills increase.
