Sprain

A sprain is caused when the ligament is stretched, usually during an injury. The ankle is the most commonly affected joint in the body. Resting the affected joint, applying ice and an elastic bandage, and keeping the joint elevated relieves pain due to a sprain. A sprain usually gets healed within two weeks, but in severe cases, it can take months.
