Sprains And Dislocation

Sprain:A sprain is an injury to a ligament. It is caused by over streching or tearing of a ligament. Common in sports and high stress activities.

Dislocation: A dislocation is when a bone is pulled out of its joint. This can happen when force is applied to a joint in an awkward way.

Symptoms:Swealing,Servere pain,Inability to move joint,Misshapen joint,

The treatment for a sprain is to ice it and immobilize it. Then allow it to rest for 3-5 days.The treatment for dislocation is to apply traction until the patient feels less pain and the bone falls back in place. Pain meds are then perscribed and rest is recommended.

The bulk of treatment for these injuries are done in ER's and walkin clinics. So it is mostly general practice and ER docters who treat them.
