Proper Handling Of Sprained Legs?
Good afternoon, I had pain in my ankle two months ago, at that time I was playing futsal and I sprained my leg, well until now the pain still occurs, I think it is a sprain in the ankle, I have tried various drugs and also massage, the pain has disappeared a bit and I tried to exercise again by jogging a little, but after I finished jogging my legs are now swollen, what is the right treatment to heal my sprained feet?, thanks in advance
Sprains can cause a variety of injuries to the involved leg. Because in the joints of the feet there are many structures ranging from skin, muscles, tendons, bones and others.
In a mild sprain, the injury may also be mild, although at the beginning of the injury, swelling and pain may also occur. But in a few days it will usually get better on its own.
But if the sprain is severe enough, it can cause injury severe enough that there will be pain and swelling for a long time. For this reason, further evaluation of the injury you experience is needed. Is there a tear in the muscles, tendons, ligaments or maybe there is a fractured bone and so on which results in the injury you experience does not heal.
An examination is required by a doctor, especially a bone specialist and if necessary, the doctor may suggest further examinations such as an X-ray or perhaps a CT scan.
Avoid massaging, massaging or taking medication without a doctor's advice. Because it may not get the expected results or even make the situation worse.
I hope this helps.
