What Are the Symptoms of a Sprain?
A sprain occurs when a ligament is overstretched or torn (conversely, a strain is a stretching or tearing of a tendon or muscle). Ligaments are tough bands of tissue that attach two bones together within a joint. Sprains commonly affect ankles, wrists, thumbs, and knees and can cause the following symptoms:
Pain around the injured joint
Limited range of motion
An audible “pop” when the injury occurs
Should I Seek Walk-In Treatment for a Sprain?
It’s always a good idea to seek walk-in medical treatment for a sprain if:
The injured area is numb
You can’t move or place weight on the affected limb or joint
You’re experiencing significant discomfort
We encourage you to receive walk-in treatment for your sprain at Lifeline Urgent Care if you notice any of these symptoms. Our urgent care center accepts patients with or without appointments and treats people of all ages. Visit us in Houston today!
